Today I upgraded to macOS Monterey. First, the new OS deleted "Bitcoin Core.app". So, I re-downloaded the signed .dmg. Second, Monterey refused to open "Bitcoin Core.app" saying

"Bitcoin Core.app" can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.

BTW. I'm not used to compiling C++ code as I am not a C++ programmer but I have xCode installed on my macOS.

Okay! The old way still works:

  1. In the Finder on your Mac, locate the app you want to open.
  2. Control-click the app icon, then choose Open from the shortcut menu.
  3. Click Open.
