How to uninstall the GlobalProtect App from Macbook

Recently I have install GlobalProtect vpn on my Macbook and found it very difficult to unistall it since it was opening on startup. This post will show you how to uninstall the GlobalProtect App from Macbook.

On Mac endpoints, you can use the Mac installation program (in this case, the GlobalProtect Installer) to uninstall a program. To uninstall the GlobalProtect app from your endpoint, install the GlobalProtect software package, and then launch the GlobalProtect Installer. The GlobalProtect Installer prompts you to install the Uninstall GlobalProtect package. After you install the Uninstall GlobalProtect package successfully, the GlobalProtect app is removed from the endpoint.

In case you do not have the Mac installation program you can do the following steps on your Macbook:

1) Press F4 and type Terminal then Enter

2) Copy and paste the following code on the terminal window

sudo /Applications/

3) Restart your Macbook and you will see that the GlobalProtect was unistalled from your Macbook

I was looking to uninstall GlobalProtect from my laptop since I used it for a previous client. Unfortunately the only way to uninstall it according their doc is to first login to then download their installer. Freaking dumb, I obviously do not have the credentials anymore to sign in.

Thanks for the share, it saves the day 👍.
