How do I allow all apps to run in Sierra and later?

Recommended Posts

macOS Sierra and later do not allow all apps to run by default. Instead, the OS limits execution to apps downloaded from AppStore or AppStore & identified developers.



As such, some downloaded apps cannot be executed without triggering a warning and users may have to go to the Security & Privacy PrefPane to allow the app to run.



To change his and allow execution of all downloaded apps by default, type the following Terminal command:

sudo spctl  --master-disable

The restriction will then be lifted and all downloaded apps will be allowed to run.



I believe this info was 1st reported by Netkas.
