The uninstall process for Class closely follows the installation process in that separate steps must be taken by both Zoom account administrators as well as users of the product (instructors and learners).

For Account Administrators: Removing Class from Your Institution’s Zoom Account

Removing the Class application from your Zoom account ensures that no new classes can be created or activated by users of the desktop products.

  1. To remove the application, simply log in with your Zoom account credentials at the following URL: https://marketplace.zoom.us/.
  2. Once here, navigate to Installed Apps in the left-hand navigation menu and select Uninstall for each Class application pictured below.

For Users: Removing Class from your macOS Device

Uninstalling Class from your device is done in the same way as other applications:

  1. From your desktop, navigate to the Applications folder in a Finder window.

2. Select the Class application and move it to your Trash.

3. Shift+Command+G, type in: ~/Library/Application Support, find the Class folder, and, if present, ClassState file, delete both.
