            Hey Ty, Try opening your system preferences on your computer and under security, you can allow programs from "untrusted" sources I think. I had to do this with mBlock on my mac. Hope this helps! -Gina

                                                Thanks Tamren! I tried using my dell laptop first, but it turns out I didn't have bluetooth capability through it. So I changed over to my mac and had a few issues there but was able to resolve them!
