Two uninstall methods are listed below to guide you through the removal of Qustodio.

Method 1: remove unwanted app using a dedicated tool

Method 2: run the uninstaller in Qustodio installation file

Typically, you can uninstall most third party Mac apps by deleting the apps in the Applications folder and the Trash. However, this option fails to work when the app does not show up in the Applications folder. If you cannot find Qustodio in the Finder, you will need to take another way to uninstall Qustodio. Here is how to do:

  • Download the Qustodio installation file from the vendor’s official page
  • Double click on the Qustodio.dmg file to open up the installation package
  • Double click on the to open up the built-in uninstall tool

Extra steps if you adopt method 2……

After using the built-in uninstaller to remove Qustodio, you may think that the uninstall is complete. Yet, some users may still find Qustodio traces in their Macs. That could happen when Qustodio-related files still remain in the system.

If you encounter the same situation, do the following to detect associated items:

  1. In a Finder window, click Go from the Menu Bar, and choose Go to Folder
  2. Type ~/Library in the box and hit Enter key (or click Go button) to open it up
  3. Type Qustodio in the search box, and then click the Library below the search box
  4. Select the files and folders whose names contain the keyword (Qustodio), then right-click on one of them, and choose Move to Trash to delete those items

Similarly, you can go ahead to carry out the detection in the /Library folder.

After the deletion, don’t rush to empty the Trash. Just keep the items in Trash for a few days to see if your Mac works well as it was before. If something wrong occurs ( like unrelated things are deleted ), you can still put them back to the original place.
