Note: Apple's highly-restrictive security model may prevent you from running ANACONDA, with the warning that it comes from an "Unidentified Developer". Please follow these instructions to install and run ANACONDA:

  1. In the Finder on your Mac, locate ANACONDA (likely in your Downloads folder, but may possibly be your Applications folder).

    Don’t use Launchpad to do this. Launchpad doesn’t allow you to access the shortcut menu.

  2. Control-click the ANACONDA app icon, then choose Open from the shortcut menu. 

  3. Click Open.

    ANACONDA is then saved as an exception to your security settings, and you can open it in the future by double-clicking it, or launching it from the Applications folder just as you can any Apple-registered app.
