Gatekeeper is a security mechanism built in to Apple’s macOS operating system. It gives computer users the ability to restrict the installation of software based on its origin (using digital signatures).
In some cases, you’ll need to change the security settings of Gatekeeper before macOS will allow you to install a release build of LibreOffice. After you’ve finished installation, you may change the security to whatever level you like.
