Acer Chrome Tab 10 "enable unknown sources"?

I recently bought Acer Chrome Tab 10 and changed to Dev OS. However when I side load an Andriod App a pop-up appears requiring me to change to Dev OS, which I have already done? Further research leads me to believe I must also "enable unknown sources", but I can't find where to do that? Can anyone assist please?

    To access it, open the Chrome OS settings screen and click the “App Settings” link under Android Apps.

    Android’s Settings screen will open in a window on your Chromebook. Click or tap the “Security” option.

    Enable the “Unknown Sources” option under Device Administration. You’ll see a warning telling you to be careful about what you download and install.

    If you don’t see the Unknown Sources option here, your Chromebook isn’t in developer mode. This option only appears here when your Chromebook is in developer mode, so try going through Step One again.

    Try switching the channel back to stable channel and then try the steps.
