Actually, this problem was sorted out with an update. Also, R2019a does not show such behaviour. Thanks Mathworks!
MacOS R2019a keeps asking to “accept incoming network connections"
16 views (last 30 days)
It seems that this problem occured before too: HERE. I am using the latest macOS Mojave (10.14.4) and MATLAB R2019a. I upgraded from the R2018a, but I've removed the older version. Every time when I open MATLAB it pops this annoying window despite the fact that MATLAB is listed in my Firewall spacs to "Allow incoming connections". Help? I am really a novice with MATLAB so I do apologise if the question is "naive". I am, thou, experienced in R and decent in Python (but more and more interested in using MATLAB).

Seconding this issue. I've added the application to the Firewall settings in System Preferences and selected "Allow incoming network connections". As an additional troubleshooting step, I also added the application to the firewall using the command-line interface, /usr/libexec/ApplicationFirewall/socketfilterfw . The same message comes up every time I start MatLab 2019a. It doesn't matter if my account has admin rights or not. It doesn't matter if I click Allow, either; nor if I restart the system after clicking Allow. All user accounts on the system are affected. The message does not appear when MatLab 2018b is launched on the same machine.
Thanks for any assistance on this!

I have filed a support ticket. I've been told that The Mathwoks is aware of the issue and is working on a solution.

Hi. I'm facing the exact same issue. Is there any solution to the problem yet?

A temporary workaround that has resolved the issue for me is to call the shell script directly: /Applications/MATLAB.../bin/matlab
Noted in a previous discussion thread for a similar issue on R2017a:
