Before installing a correct driver, there are few steps that need to be done depending on what kind of Mac hardware you have. there are three major hardware variations:
a. M1 based
b. Intel based with T2 security chip
c. Intel based without T2 security chip.
very easy to identify which one you have.
M1 based - Go to, About This Mac --> Overview. if it doesn't say Chip Apple M1 there, please follow the link to find out if you have b. or c. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208862
now when we know what Mac variation you have (a, b, or c), we can setup the Mac accordingly.
for a. you need to select 'Reduced Security' in 'Startup Security Utility'. see here how to get there
for b. Go to Startup Security Utility and select 'No Security' under 'Secure Boot'. see here how to get there
for c. Nothing to do, you are ready to continue.
Security Settings on Mac
As of macOS High Sierra 10.14, a new security feature was introduced that requires user approval before installing driver software. Go to your Mac System Preferences > Security & Privacy panel to allow the system extension so your driver will work properly.
For more details, please see: http://developer.apple.com/library/content/technotes/tn2459
Please check to make sure you are downloading the correct driver.
