You might try something like AppCleaner to remove all components of any application.

I would not use AppCleaner or AppZapper to uninstall Little Snitch, as it comes with its own uninstaller.

From the OP's original post, it sounds like he already uninstalled it, but had something left behind.

I didn't get that impression, but it's a little ambiguous. If the OP already tried to uninstall it using AppCleaner/AppZapper, I'd recommend reinstalling it and then running the uninstaller.

I suggest you try to reinstall the app if you already removed and use the uninstaller that came with littlesnitch.

Also down the road i suggest you invest in CleanApp when you need to uninstall something completely. CleanApp has a logging feature that logs any app you install, so come time you want to remove it, it deletes your app and all of the associated files.

You're right, it is a bit ambiguous. I also agree that if an app comes with an uninstaller, that's preferred over using AppCleaner/AppZapper in most cases. However, some uninstallers intentionally leave some things behind, such as .plist files, in case you decide to reinstall the app at a later time. If you want to be sure it's all gone, something like AppCleaner can help.

...this is the entire point of this thread, I think. "All-in-one" uninstallers often fall short with more complex apps. Always use the application's own uninstaller if it has one.

True.
