However, some users are facing an issue where they are not being able to open the PP tool on Mac. Before you mistake it for a bug in PP, you should know that this is due to a safety feature in Mac. By default, Mac OS X prevents applications from unidentified sources or developers from launching. Whenever you launch the PP tool, an alert will come up saying that the application does not belong from the Mac App Store or a verified store. The exact alert message reads like this:
“[App name] can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer”.
The reason behind this is the security feature called GateKeeper. This feature does not permanently prevent the unidentified apps from launching; it’s just like a firewall which can be turned off to run such applications.
Temporary Fix for the PP Can’t Be Opened Issue
This option gets PP running on your Mac while still providing security:
- Control-click or right-click the PP tool icon and click Open.
- Now click Open button again in the next alert box to the launch PP tool anyway.
In case you do a lot of jailbreaking and don’t want to go through this alert message at all, then you can turn off the GateKeeper feature completely.
Permanent Fix for the PP Can’t Be Opened Issue
This option works best for advanced users who do a lot of jailbreaking and play around everyday with apps from unidentified sources ; such users know which app to trust and which not to. Normal users who do not jailbreak everyday are recommended to follow the temporary method.
By permanently disabling the Unidentified App Developer Prevention of GateKeeper, you will never get any alert messages on opening PP tool or any other jailbreak app. Just follow the below-given steps:
- Go to the Apple Menu and open System Preferences.
- Open the Security & Privacy option and then select General. Now click on the lock icon that is visible in the corner in order to unlock the settings.
- In the menu that shows up, choose the Anywhere option under the Allow applications downloaded from section.
- Now allow and accept the security warning.
- Now any app from any developer or location can be launched, including jailbreak tools like PP and TaiG.
