Mac Multiple Users - How to exclude for some users?



I have  BBDM installed on a Mac with multiple users. A couple of those are children so I have Parental controls turned on, and BBDM excluded from their available list. However, when they log in BBDM is trying to sync artwork or something and continues to request administrator passwords many many times. When I install the BBDM in the Destination Select segment it asks whether to install for all users, but there is no choice to exclude for some users. 


Is there a way to do this?

Re: Mac Multiple Users - How to exclude for some users?

Hey luapekralc,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for the question.


When installing BlackBerry Desktop Software for Mac you only have the option to install for yourself or all users.  My apologies, you can not choose selected users to have access to this application.


Let me know if you have any more questions.
