Try to Download Apps from the App Store Only
The App Store should be your first option when searching and downloading apps to your Mac. Why? The straightforward answer is that all the App Store apps have been curated and trusted by Apple itself. Sure, the App Store doesn’t have every app you may need, and some apps you’ll need to grab from other sources, but we’ll talk about that in a moment. The best part about the App Store is that Apple shows you all of the permissions the app needs to work, and you can even check the reviews from other users who’ve downloaded the app. All in all, even if you can’t find everything you need in it, the App Store should be your first option when installing a new app on your Mac.
