How to uninstall Tor browser

Tor Browser is a web browser that allows you to browse anonymously and confidentially. It disguises who you are and who you communicate with. Generally, it serves as a guarantor of protection of your private data when you are online. There is also Tor Chrome Extension that allows using Tor ports while you surf on the Internet. Some users claim that Tor is slow, and prefer other ways to a secure internet connection. If you want to uninstall the Tor browser, follow one of two ways described below.

Way 1. Uninstall Tor manually

  1. Quit the browser.
  2. Find it in the Application Folder and drag and drop it in Trash.

The first step has been done. However, note that when you remove any program the regular way, its service files still remain on your Mac. They are stored in the hidden Library Folder.

  1. Open the Library folder.
  2. Check the next subfolders for Tor leftovers* and delete them:

~/Library/Application Support/TorBrowser-Data

~/Library/Preferences/org.mozilla.tor browser.plist

tor browser - remove

*Note: some apps create caches and store them in folders that may differ from one computer to another. Make sure there are no more leftovers on your Mac. Also check these subfolders: ~/Library/Caches/…

~/Library/Caches/…

~/Library/Containers/…
