What is touristd?

Posted at — Aug 6, 2017

touristd is responsible for displaying a New to Mac? notification roughly after 5-10 minutes using macOS Sierra for the first time.

New to Mac?

After you click on Show it will open the What’s New in macOS page in Safari.

There is a preference file (~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.touristd.plist) that gets created/modified after dismissing or activating the notification.

Where can you find it?

/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Tourist.framework/Versions/A/Resources/touristd
