UNAlertStyle Restricted

Patrick Wardle:

If a tool notifies the user via macOS’s notification center the style can no longer be programmatically set to alert …only banner.

Banners are automatically dismissed which breaks security alert requiring user interaction! 🥲

Note: Apple’s apps can send alerts by default 🤪

It’s frustrating how API limitations like this tend not to get announced or documented.

Thomas Reed:

I’ve always argued against a custom alert pop-up implementation in Malwarebytes for Mac, favoring native notifications instead. But if the user can now miss an important alert about an infection, that’s going to change the equation. 😕
