Notice something missing in this control panel

More under cut

Workaround – sudo spctl --master-disable

    Woah. If it stays like this, it’s time to abandon macOS!

    If they gonna disable the option to install whatever I want it would be annoying. It’s not iOS, it’s full computer system. Why they need to be control freaks? I hope it’s just not working because it’s testing version.

    It’s still showing “Anywhere” for me after upgrading from 10.11.
    I’m guessing there is still a defaults setting for this?

    “This doesn?t mean that you?re left out in the cold if you really need to open an unsigned app, though. There is still an option to open it anyway ? you just can?t allow it universally any more. To open an unsigned app, just right-click the app and select Open.”
