A user sent me an alert that 1Password is asking for permission to record his computer screen. Is this legitimate? See screen shot.

This permission is needed for scanning QR codes (to configure two-factor authentication on websites and also to scan your Setup Code to configure your 1Password app instead of having to type your login information manually).
Thanks @ag_ana! Since they denied the access is there a way I can have them allow it again, or at least to reset the denial so that the dialog will come back up next time the need it?
Yes, if you open macOS Preferences > Security & Privacy > Screen Recording, they should see 1Password in the list (unchecked). If they check the 1Password 7 entry again, they will grant that permission again
I looked in my own Security & Privacy and do not see Screen Recording as a suboption. Within the Privacy tab the only suboption that includes 1Password for me is Camera. I'm on Mojave (10.14.6) and this is on Catalina (10.15.*). Is Recording a new setting in Catalina?
Yes, it's a new menu in Catalina @hesspaul
