Seeing a message similar to the one below?
Apple's macOS Gatekeeper service is preventing you from installing
adbLink. Luckily, you can bypass this.
The macOS Gatekeeper service is a security function that exists
to restrict program installation to Apple-approved sources, i.e. the App
Store or programs "signed" via an Apple developer ID. This is fine, except
an Apple developer ID costs $100/year, which is not at all friendly for
free applications like adbLink.
In the past, the Gatekeeper preference panel included a selection that
allowed you to disable Gatekeeper, so you could install applications
from anywhere. No more, Apple has hidden this selection.
Below are instructions for unhiding it.
To unlock Gatekeeper, issue the following command in Terminal:
sudo spctl --master-disable
Now, when you open the Security & Privacy preference, you should see:
To relock Gatekeeper, simply choose the preferred setting via the radio button or issue the following command from Terminal to disable the "anywhere" option:
sudo spctl --master-enable
