Additionally, we notice that many users unknowingly download the “fake” Chromium, which is infected with ad-supported spyware-class tools. In that case it is strongly suggested to entirely uninstall the compromised Chromium, for the sake of security.

Considering that some users may have various problems in performing uninstallation, hereby we are gonna show you the correct way to uninstall Chromium for Mac.

First of all, you can begin the app removal with the following steps:

If Chromium is not in the /Applications folder, go the File > Find from the top bar, and search for Chromium. If you’ve created any aliases for Chromium, move them to Trash as well. After throwing Chromium into Trash, you should go ahead to hunt down its leftovers hidden in the system if you want to totally get rid of this app.

To delete your profile information like bookmarks and history, do the followings:

  • In a Finder window, click Go > Go to Folder from the top menu bar.
  • Type in the following path in the Go to Folder box and hit Go button:
