    I know this is missing from Beta 1 and hopefully will return, but has anyone figured out how to open apps that require the Allow from Anywhere enabled? I have 2 apps that I cannot open, one says it's damaged and move to trash and the other is non-verified. I can't open either without this setting & they both opened when I changed the setting on El Capitan... The control button open is not working either...

    Alternatively, if you must use the ‘Allow from anywhere’ option, you can type this into a Terminal window to do so:
    Code:
    sudo spctl --master-disable

    In case this wasn't already shared, here's how to bring back the option to allow apps downloaded from anywhere to "System Preferences>Security & Privacy"

    1) Open Terminal
    2) Type
    Code:
    sudo spctl --master-disable
    3) Enter your password

    And that's it!
