Open Program from Unidentified Developer (Mac)

Follow

THIS LEGACY VERSION (ZIP) OF THE COURSE PLAYER IS OUTDATED AND NO LONGER RECOMMENDED. SEE OUR NEW TRUEFIRE COURSE PLAYER DESKTOP APP (WINDOWS/MAC)

Mac Users: TrueFire's Desktop app is not registered as an identified developer with the Mac Store. To allow the application to install, you must override the Security & Privacy settings. 

If you receive this message:

 " ... can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer" 

or 

"this player has been damaged please move to the trash"

than go to Security & Privacy settings on your computer and choose to "Open Anyways"

How to update your Security & Privacy Settings

1 - Go to System Preferences

2 - Select Security & Privacy 

3 - Choose to "Open Anyway"

Alternatively, to override your security settings and open the app anyway:

  1. In the Finder, locate the app you want to open.
    (Don’t use Launchpad to do this. Launchpad doesn’t allow you to access the shortcut menu.)
  2. Press the Control key, then click the app icon.
  3. Choose Open from the shortcut menu.
  4. Click Open.

The app is saved as an exception to your security settings, and you will be able to open it in the future by double-clicking it, just like any registered app.

Use the TrueFire Course Player: Desktop app (Recommended!)

All that being said, we have a new installed player which we recommend all customers use in place of the legacy standalone zip folders.

The new TrueFire Course Player: Desktop app is a one-time installed program which allows you to access your entire course library of lessons from one centralized location. You can download on-demand or in bulk for full offline access.

You do not need to worry about downloading separate standalone course folders with separate video players.

You can learn more about the new TrueFire Course player and download at: www.truefire.com/apps
