Running FocusTune in macOS Sierra (10.12.x) and High Sierra (10.13.x)

1. High Sierra only

macOS High Sierra 10.13 introduces a new security feature that requires user approval before installing many downloaded applications that are not known to Apple. This approval is a one time process to "approve" FocusTune for use on your mac computer.

1.1. Set Security Policy

When you run FocusTune you may see a dialog that looks something like this:

Please make the following changes to your Security & Privacy settings to approve FocusTune for use on your system.

Open System Preferences, click on Security & Privacy.

1) You may need to click the Lock symbol in the bottom right corner of your Security & Privacy menu to make the other changes.

2.) Make sure that App Store and Identified developers is selected.

3.) Click: Allow, which will approve FocusTune to run on your system.
