#StackBounty: #macos #administrator Can I block certain apps from being opened by non-admin users in macOS?

Bounty: 50

I’m on macOS and I’d like to prevent the non-admin user from opening particular apps at all.

In particular, I’d like for system preferences to be unavailable to the user.

I’m thinking that I might use an app like Focus to make that happen. I’m wondering if there are other options. I tried to do this with screen time, but it’s problematic for two reasons:

  1. The minimum amount of time is 1 minute and not zero minutes which is what I’d like and…
  2. Even after the minute and without the screen time password, the non-admin user can still request an additional minute.

My goal is to prevent the app from opening at all for non-admin users.
