  1. They are blocked by a specific security feature which is called Gatekeeper. Here’s how to Allow Third-Party Apps to Install on macOS Catalina.

  2. Those who only install apps from the Mac App Store should not bother changing the default settings. Make sure to select the first option labelled Mac App Store and close the box. If you want to install and run any app you want and don’t worry at all about malware, then choose the third option labelled Anywhere. I use the second option since I.

I have also purchased several programs over the years, such as Audiobook Builder. I have a legal license and key. But I can't install from the .dmg file because I didn't download it from the App Store. It IS offered in the App Store, but I have to pay for it again!!!

How do I install (legally) purchased software such as AudioBook Builder OR free software such as Firefox onto my computer without repurchasing them? Or, in the case of Firefox, when it's not available in the App Store?
