SQLiteStudio Error on Mac

How to fix this installation error on Mac: “Can’t be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed.”

After I tried to open the SQLiteStudio installation file I got this error message: “SQLiteStudio: cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.”

I google-searched for a solution but whatever I found suggested I need to run recovery mode which is complicated and not that safe. You can easily make your Mac not working again. If you do and I’m personally not advising that, I recommend backing up your MacBook with a Time Machine before attempting to change any settings.

But I found a much easier solution, and it is very simple!

This is how you can install SQLiteStudio 3.2.1 on Mac OS Catalina and up

  1. Find the installation file called SQLiteStudio

2. On Mac keyboard select Control then Right Click on SQLiteStudio installation file and then select Open.

3. After that a new pop-up window is opened with this message: macOS cannot verify the developer of “SQLiteStudio”. Are you sure you want to open it?. This time is different than the one with an error. It has an Open option. Click on Open and voila, now you are able to install SQLiteStudio.

This is it! Now you can continue with a SQLiteStudio installation.

Good Luck!
