You can freely install the Popcorn Time app on your device with any of the iOS, macOS, Android, Windows or Linux platforms. But, if you decide to delete this application from your Mac, we recommend following our guide on how to uninstall Popcorn Time in order to do it correctly and safely. Read on to learn two methods of uninstalling this application on a Mac.
Uninstall the Popcorn Time Mac App Manually
First, we want to mention that once launched, an app creates temporary service files for its correct performance on your Mac. These service files are important only while you are using the application. After removing an app from your Mac, its useless service files are still stored on your computer. Most of them are kept in your user’s Library folder. If you want to completely delete the Popcorn Time Mac application, you should remove its leftovers, too. For this, take the following steps:
- Quit Popcorn Time.
- Find and select the PopcornTime.app in the Applications folder. Delete the executable file by dragging and dropping it to the Trash bin.
- To get rid of the Popcorn Time leftovers in the user’s Library folder, open Finder → in the Finder’s menu click Go → Go to Folder → in the window that appears, type ~/Library and click Go.
- Find and remove all unneeded service files related to the Popcorn Time app in the following user’s Library subfolders:
- ~/Library/Application Support/PopcornTime
- ~/Library/Saved Application State/se.popcorn-time.PopcornTime.savedState

5. Empty the Trash bin to remove Popcorn Time from your Mac completely.
