Notes:

With Mac OS 10.9 (Mavericks) and later, Apple has built their own version of the FTDI VCP driver into the operating system (AN134). However, there seems to be some conflict between drivers from FTDIchip.com and the ones inherent to Apple. Luckily, there is a solution to this problem, and it comes from FTDI directly.

If you have that issues, solution is referred to this site: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/how-to-install-ftdi-drivers/mac
