Open anyway for not verified app not working despite being unlocked. Any help is much appreciated


Can you find the app in Finder and control click (right click) on the icon and select open?

Sometimes that brings up the approval prompt more readily for me (in fact, I’ve never once used the interface you show above).

This second step is documented in the official apple help as the next step after you select Open Anyway.

The app is now saved as an exception to your security settings, and you can open it in the future by double-clicking it, just as you can any authorized app.
