I am facing following multiple issues with Python + Selenium + Chrome :

WebDriverException: Message: 'chromedriver' executable needs to be in PATH.

“chromedriver” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.

Solution :

  • Download chromedriver_mac64_m1.zip [Check and find appropriate version here]
  • Open termial and execute below cmd
   sudo mv chromedriver /usr/local/bin 
   sudo chown root /usr/local/bin/chromedriver 
   sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/chromedriver
