FortiClient Permissions on Macs
FortiClient can be installed on macOS 11 (Big Sur) and 10.15 (Catalina), but it works properly only when you grant full disk access in Security & Privacy for the component services. This article provides information for allowing that access. 

For help with FortiClient permissions following the Ventura update, see this page.

Step 1:Click Open Security & Privacy Settings.
Step 2:Click the lock to allow changes to the settings.
Step 3:Enter your User Name and Password.

Step 4:Choose Full Disk Access on the left menu, then click the check boxes next to the following items:
  • fcaptmon
  • fctservctl
  • fctservctl2
  • fmon
  • fmon2
  • FortiClient
  • FortiGuardAgent

You may have to manually add fmon2. If it isn't on the displayed list, follow steps 5 through 7 to add it.

Step 5:Click the plus (+) sign below the permission list. 

Step 6:Browse to /Library/Application Support/Fortinet/FortiClient/bin. Select fmon2 and click Open

Step 7:Confirm that fmon2 is checked for Full Disk Access.
