Answer 2: Give Your System Permission to Open the Installer Anytime

- Go to the Apple Menu > System Preferences
- Select Security and Privacy
- Click the lock icon to make changes and enter your administrator password.
- Click Open Anyway.
- Click Open
Result: The installer will open and you can continue install the GlobalProtect app.
