VirtualBox Installation Issue – Code Signer

While installing virtualbox, I ran into this issue https://stackoverflow.com/questions/55004803/install-virtualbox-6-on-mac-10-14-mojave-failed-with-kernel-install-error

Net: the Oracle/VirtualBox ID is NOT in the approved keys/certs.

I did not follow the exact steps.

  1. Launch Terminal
  2. sudo -s
  3. Enter password for the user to switch
  4. spctl kext-consent –disable
  5. Install VirtualBox
  6. spctl kext-consent –enable

At the end of the steps, I was able to launch VirtualBox. I did not have to reboot.
