How to Grant Accessibility Access to MultiMod

In order for MultiMod to work, it needs Accessibility Access to be enabled in your System Preferences.

macOS does not allow direct keyboard access to any applications by default, but this is required for a program like MultiMod to work.

MultiMod in no way captures, records, caches, stores, transmits or does anything with your keystrokes.  Its sole function is to apply modifier keys pressed on one keyboard to keys pressed on another keyboard.

These instructions and screenshots are based on macOS Sierra (10.12.4), but the process should be similar for most recent versions of macOS.
