Every time I download some apps from different sources other than Mac App Store. I don’t know how to skip this kind of error and not all the apps that I need can be found on App Store. Please can any of you experts help me to fix this error ?
“NCbackgrounder.app” can’t opened because it is from an unidentified developer.
Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.
Safari downloaded this file today at 10:42 AM from sourceforge.net.
Ncbackgrounder cannot be installed on MAC due security issues
This is a new type of security feature called GateKeeper. What is makes you do is either temporarily work around the security or turn off the app.
To temporarily get around the error:
Right-click on the downloaded app and click the Open button
Click on Open again in the next window that opens (the one that gives you a warning to launch the app)
Turn off Gatekeeper’s Security for App
Go to the Apple Menu and open up System Preferences
Click on Security & Privacy>General tab
You will see an icon that looks like a lock – click on it
Look for the sentence that says “Allow apps download from:” and make sure you put a check in the “Anywhere” field
Accept the security warnings that pop up
You will now be able to open any app downloaded from anywhere or from any developer
