Starting with Mac Sierra, Apple made it more difficult for users to download and run many of their favorite apps.

By default, the Download from Anywhere radio button is hidden from the Security & Privacy panel on System Preferences.

Users are sometimes confused and searching for help to simply add an app to their computer.

With AllowApps, click a button to show the Anywhere option. If you later change your mind, click Restrict to hide it again.

AllowApps is free to download and use. To run AllowApps the first time, select it. Now hold down the Control key and choose Open from the popup menu.
