What is xattred for Mac

xattred lets you inspect and edit all extended attributes (xattrs) associated with a file or folder, cut/copy/paste any xattr between files or folders, create your own new xattrs with arbitrary contents, and add a quarantine xattr to force a full Gatekeeper check without downloading the file. Also has a crawler to explore types, sizes, and content of xattrs. Now supports adding and stripping xattr tags to control their preservation, and valuable interface improvements

This is probably for advanced users, but Eclecticlight is a goldmine of free apps to manage your OS, your files, etc. This one explores the unknown world of "extended attributes": as for now, I can only see one use, stripping the quarantine flag from downloaded files (or from an entire folder/drive) to avoid the warning message in the Finder when you open them, and some issues that arose since Mojave. Pratique and Sandstrip are 2 other interesting utilities by Eclecticlight, specifically dedicated to strip quarantine flags. I also recommend Lockrattler and Silentknight, which deals with other security aspects of the OS.
