Uninstall Native Device Encryption from Mac endpoints

If you need to uninstall the software from a client computer, proceed as follows:

  1. On the Mac client go to /Library.
  2. Select the folder /Sophos SafeGuard DE.
  3. Select and double-click the file Sophos SafeGuard DE Uninstaller.pkg
  4. A wizard guides you through uninstallation.

As soon as the last Sophos SafeGuard product is removed, the client configuration is deleted as well.

It is not necessary to decrypt the disk before uninstalling the software.

A user with administrative rights cannot be prevented from uninstalling the software. (A policy that prevents this on Windows clients has no effect on Mac clients).

The uninstaller package is signed, and macOS will try to validate this signature. This procedure may take several minutes.
