    Version 10.12.6



    Installed Proton VPN about a week ago. Had a pop up for the first few hours until I allowed it access to permanent confidential information in my keychain. Before that i just deleted it hoping it would go away but it still kept popping up every few seconds so after deleting the application, I granted it access just to go away.

    Forgot about it.
    Yesterday I received an email telling me that the free trial was over and if I did not upgrade the free trial would be slowed down.

    Since then I am logged out all the daily webpages i log into within minutes some of which I keep open all day long so I keep having to re-log on.

    Please, does anyone know how to get rid of this VPN once and for all?

    I did that a week ago to no avail.

    I have a post into them now but it says it can take up to two days for a response.
    I have seen others say the same, and have even taken their macs back before the install to no avail.
    I havent gone that far as i believe there must be a simple way to just get rid of it without too much fuss.


    * I know its still working in the background as favoured webpages have logged me out and upon trying to log in have needed to double check that it is me, as i am still appearing from another location


    App ditched it still wants access to Neagant in the firewall and if denied, you cant log on anywhere

    Open System Preferences - Network and delete the VPN profile(s) created by Proton.

    Thank you. That appears to have been the area I missed. I didnt think to look there once I thought it had been deleted but it now appears to have solved and finished up the actual delete and my computer is back to normal.
