I have used OpenDNS for years as my DNS server. It works well, and I assume that this arrangement provides a bit of privacy compared to using my local internet service provider’s DNS server.
A couple of years ago I noticed that my OpenDNS web content filtering settings were inactive. This may have been because my IP address (dynamically assigned by my local internet service provider) has not been updated in my OpenDNS account. Apparently the IP address updater client for OpenDNS stopped working 2 or 3 years ago, when 32-bit apps were not allowed by macOS. OpenDNS now has a new 64-bit IP address updated client for macOS. When I attempted to launch this new client app, this error message appeared:
“OpenDNSUpdater.app” cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.
OpenDNS is a Cisco product, free for individual household use. It’s hard to imagine that Cisco would not be recognized as a legitimate developer.
Any suggestions? I already know that I could use other non-ISP DNS servers (Google, Cloudfare, etc.), but I like the web content filtering provided by OpenDNS.
