I hadn’t realized until today that this setting was hidden in macOS Sierra. After a colleague pointed it out, I decided this needed fixing. Here’s how to bring back the third “Anywhere” option in macOS Sierra.
From the Terminal, run:
sudo spctl --master-disable
It’ll ask for your password. Plug it in and hit enter.
Head back to System Preferences > Security and Privacy and you should see the “Anywhere” option once more. If it used to be ticked before your upgrade to Sierra, it should be ticked again, now.
This workaround disables Gatekeeper altogether, though if you’re choosing the “Anywhere” route, having it on isn’t all the helpful, anyway.

I've made many changes to this site over the last few years and sometimes things get missed when I sweep for updates. I wrote this post 436 days ago and might need updating or we're in a situation where I've explained something that is no longer accurate. If you found something incorrect or needs refreshing, let me know and I'll get it fixed.
