Why does Grammarly need access to accessibility features?

Note: This product is available to users who take part in beta testing. 

Grammarly works in tandem with your operating system to provide feedback about your writing across a wide range of supported apps on your computer.

To offer this experience, Grammarly needs access to Accessibility features on your Mac. Without this access, our product will not be able to provide writing assistance.

To grant access:

  1. In the Apple menu, choose System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy.
  2. From the list of options, choose Accessibility.
  3. Click the lock and provide your password or administrator credentials:

  4. Select the check box next to Grammarly and then click the lock to prevent further editing.

You can revoke access at any time by repeating the above steps and unchecking the box next to Grammarly.

At Grammarly, we practice privacy by design. Read Grammarly’s User Trust Guidelines to learn about our user-first approach to privacy and security.
