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 restore the Anywhere option. If you later change your mind, click Restrict to hide it again.

See how to Install AllowApps on Catalina.
