MacOS 10.14 Mojave added a new security feature to prevent malware from controlling other applications.

The mechanism blocks the Hotkeys and Text actions of Stream Deck from working, unless the user explicitly adds Stream Deck to the whitelist.

The first time you use an Hotkey or Text action in macOS 10.14 Mojave, you will see a message:
