Compatible HP all in one for MacPro OS Sierra

I have upgraded My MacPro to the current OS Sierra.  When I try and download driver for HP3632 my mac will not allow me to open it because it does not support windows.  I bought this printer because the advert says it supports Mac's.  The drivers on the website only have 4 os options and 10.12 is not one of them.

How can I get the right driver for it and how am I able to get around the Mac securtiy system?  I have even disabled the Mac security to allow downloads from anywhere, 

Help please

   When posting a question, especially to the wrong forum, it's helpful
to provide an accurate, detailed description of the hardware and
software involved.  In this case, "printer" or "printer/scanner" or
"DeskJet" might have saved some Web searches.

   What, exactly, did you download, from where?  As usual, an actual
error message might be more helpful than a vague description or
interpretation.

   Again, "the website" conveys no useful information.

   My Web search (from my Mac, running Mac OS X 10.11) for:
       hp 3632
found, among many other things:

http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-DeskJet-3630-All-in-One-Printer-series/7172306/model/7599657

which would seem to be more Mac-suitable than Windows-suitable.

   I'll admit that in my case, it said "Mac OS X 10.11", not "macOS
Sierra (10.12)", but I'd give it a try.  I doubt that the
printer/scanner details in the OS have changed drastically between
versions 10.11 and 10.12.

> [...] and how am I able to get around the Mac securtiy system?

   With my weak psychic powers, I can't see the actual error message
which you confront in this case.  In my limited experience, when dealing
with objections to software from a questionable source, as I recall, the
System Preferences > Security & Privacy gizmo may offer a "click here to
do it anyway" control after the original failure.

   When none of this works, you might try asking in a forum at hp.com
(the printer company) instead of here, at hpe.com (not the printer
company).  Even there, accurate descriptions of exactly what you
downloaded from where, what you did with it, and what happened when you
did it may be needed for anyone to provide more helpful advice.

As Steven said, this is the wrong company for printers and PC products. You need to register in the HP Inc. Support Forum:
