Hi, My Ledger Live has recently been updated to 2.31.1 and my iMac to OS Mojave. Since then, I can not go back to Ledger Live, it always tell me that I do not have the permission to open it and that I should contact my administrator. What can I do to retrieve Ledger Live ? I have a Ledger nano S

I just had this issue too. When you open up ledger live choose to “skip device setup”. Then when you get on, you can connect your hardware wallet to your computer and sync the accounts. It’s scary lol, I synced the account with the smallest balance first just to check it works and its all good, have synced them all back up again now.
