No start up on macOS Catalina 10.15.5 because Sourcetree is blocked by Apple



when trying to start Sourcetree on macOS Catalina 10.15.5, an error message is displayed by macOS stating that the app can not be started because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. I downloaded the most recent available version freshly from sourcetreeapp.comScreenshot 2020-07-11 at 17.21.29.png

Anyone any idea if this is going to be fixed soon? It kind of stops us in our tracks.


PS: Neither nor works for me.

Just tried it on the same version of macOS you have.

Right click - Open, shows this popup. From here you just need to hit Open and it opens, asking you to move itself to Applications.

Sourcetree version 4.0.1 (234)


What do you have set in your Security & Privacy settings?
