Gatekeeper Issues in OSX 10.8?
Mountain Lion has some great new features. One of them being the security feature “Gatekeeper” which attempts to protect you from accidentally installing malicious software. But sometimes it may be too clever for its own good and will prevent you from opening apps that you actually want to use and know are safe to run, like MacStitch
If you find that since upgrading to Mountain Lion you see an error message similar to what’s shown below, here’s how to force the app to open :
To open the app that was blocked by Gatekeeper, press the ‘Control’ key whilst selecting the app, choose ‘Open’ from the shortcut menu that appears, and then click ‘Open’.
Once you’ve opened an app this way, it’s considered an exception to the security settings of Gatekeeper and you can double-click to open it without warnings.
