macOS Sierra: Open programs from unidentified developers

This article was been published more than 6months ago. The information contained herein may be outdated.

Since upgrading to macOS Sierra, the option “Allow applications downloaded from Anywhere” is unavailable. For most users, this shouldn’t be a problem, but if you, like me, run the odd third-party application, this option being missing is kind of problematic.

Luckily, there’s a fairly easy way to get around this problem; if you right-click the application, and click Open, you get this prompt:

...is an application downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?

That should do the trick.
