I am running an iMac OS 10.15 (Catalina) and tried to install TorBrowser. I successfully downloaded the .dmg, but when I tried to load it I received an error message "updater can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for maliciious software" Please advise. Thank you /gh
This really has nothing to do with Tor Browser and is a general Mac issue. I don't use Macs but I googled this issue and found the fix here.
The summary is that you need to go into your security settings and tell your Mac to open it anyway.
@JSEvans is right on the money .
System Preferences >
Security & Privacy >
There should be an option to
allow the installer to proceed at the bottom of that page. Click the lock in the bottom left, enter your password, and click
Note: Be sure to go to system preferences immediately after you get the error message - if you wait too long the aforementioned "allow" option will disappear.
plz upvote so I can make this a comment in the future! :D thx
