    How to Disable Gatekeeper and Allow Apps From Anywhere in macOS Sierra

    The Gatekeeper settings can be found in System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General. The Gatekeeper options are located beneath “All apps downloaded from:” with the choice of “Anywhere” missing.

    Thankfully, the “Anywhere” setting can be restored to Gatekeeper in Sierra with a Terminal command. First, quit System Preferences if it’s open and then open a new Terminal window. Enter the following command, followed by your admin password when prompted:

    sudo spctl --master-disable
    

    Restore Sierra Gatekeeper Settings to Default

    sudo spctl --master-enable
    

    Allow a single app through Gatekeeper

    If you just want to allow 1 app through Gatekeeper without disabling the whole Gatekeeper use the below command in terminal:

    sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine /Applications/LockedApp.app
    

    "Note change "LockedApp.app" to the app you are trying to use for instance to allow Pages use:

    sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Pages.app


  • Awesome :)
