MacOS / Logitech Lift and secure input problem

Interesting problem during setup of Logitech Lift mouse.

There is a secure input mode / flag on MacOS which prevents input devices in some cases from working / installing properly.

Below is a post on the topic in the Logitech support forum:

To check if secure input mode is enabled and by which process do the following:

  • Launch terminal and go in directory /Applications/Utilities 
  • Execute command
    ioreg -l -d 1 -w 0 | grep SecureInput
  • If nothing returned, then the secure input mode is NOT active
  • Otherwise search for “kCGSSessionSecureInputPID”=xxxx in the returned output. The number xxxx points to the Process ID (PID). You can kill it and try again
