Removing Global Protect from my mac
We have this horrible VPN software called global protect on our laptops but i need to remove it as its no longer needed.
When i try and move it to the bin it says it running...
If i kill it with activity manager it just reopens
If i kill it in terminal using kill -9 pid it reopens.
Does anyone have any idea on how i can stop this?
This is now resolved so can be closed

What happens, if you do the following:

How I uninstalled the annoying GlobalProtect
This is how I removed the annoying GlobalProtect. It is badly developed software.
1. Go to application and rename the application. You will need your password.
2. Log off your user name and log back into your user account on your mac and move GlobalProtect to the Trash where it belongs.

Re: Removing Global Protect from my mac
Running the install package gives the option to uninstall GlobalProtect. The install package is a file named globalprotect.pkg which can be downloaded by logging in at the VPN server address in a web browser.

thanks for this very helpful post, it was a nightmare.
confirmed was able to uninstall by running the uninstall.sh script in the content package.
had to run the script as sudo though.

What worked for me
What worked for me was going to /Applications/GlobalProtect.app/Contents/Resources in terminal and then uninstalling. My uninstaller had a different name: uninstall_gp.sh
sudo bash uninstall_gp.sh
I uninstalled because it doesn't work to connect to my work VPN and the other solution work offers actually does connect. I didn't need it running all the time.

I've got similar problems. It completely wrecked my iMac. To get rid of it, so you can fix the routing tables and other things it has broken, you not only have to delete the set-up files in:
But also get rid of the daemons it installs that start to mess it all up again when you restart.
I'm not running it on a mac mini, an old 32-bit one, and it doesn't seem to make the same mess there.
The VPN is terrible, though, as it cuts out once or twice an hour and, after doing this for a while, stops working altogether - requiring you to find somebody to fix it. I've been down well over an hour with no sign of any help from my local IT or from PaloAlto networks - not even an e-mail from support acknowledging my email.
Does anybody know of a VPN, ideally open source, that actually works - with people also using PCs as well as Macs?

Easy way to delete globalprotect
1. You must have sudo or administrator rights on your mac
Run the below command:
sudo killall GlobalProtect && chflags noschg /Applications/GlobalProtect.app/ && rm -fR /Applications/GlobalProtect.app/
You may have to run it a few times.
