In the event that you want to completely remove the Kolide Launcher agent from a device, you can do so by following the steps below.

On macOS:

First, launch Terminal.
Next, unload and remove the launcher by running:

sudo launchctl stop com.kolide.launcher
sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.kolide.launcher.plist
sudo rm -f /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.kolide.launcher.plist
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/kolide
sudo rm -rf /etc/kolide
sudo rm -rf /var/kolide


If you also want to uninstall the Kolide desktop app, locate it in the Applications folder and drag it to the trash.


On Windows:

First, open PowerShell as an administrator.
Next, stop the osquery service by running:
stop-service osqueryd

Finally, open the Add and Remove Programs settings, select osquery from the programs list, and click uninstall.
