Why do I have to access to my disk the first time I open Browser Care?

Since June 1, 2012 Apple introduced new security measures related to the applications sold on Mac App Store. At the first start of Browser Care (v. 2.0+ Mac App Store version) it is necessary to provide access to the hard disk of your Mac in order to use the application. You only need to do this once.
