  • Head to Finder menu, choose Empty Trash, and click Empty Trash again. Alternative, right click Trash icon in dock, choose Empty Trash and then click Empty Trash again.

Empty Trash

Attention: Emptying Trash is irrevocable and everything in the Trash will be deleted from your Mac immediately. You’d better check your Trash before emptying it.

This is the drag-to-delete method to uninstall most Mac apps in all versions of Mac OS X. Generally the app you trash will disappear from the /Applications folder. If you cannot trash the app, make sure to quit all its processes, and try it again.

(2) Uninstall 1Password via Launchpad

  • Open Launchpad, and type 1Password in the search box at the top.
  • Hold on 1Password until the icon begins to wiggle and shows “X” .
  • Tap the “X” in the left top corner, and then click Delete in the pop-up dialog.

This way works for the apps which are downloaded and installed from the App Store. If you’re using the Mac App Store version, you can quickly remove 1Password like that, and once you click the X icon, it will be uninstalled instantly from your Mac.

Worry: still have 1Password remnants on your mac?

Once installed, 1Password scatters some of its components like preferences, caches, supporting files around your system. Those items will not be deleted if you just delete the app via the Trash or from Launchpad. If you wish to do a clean uninstall, you will have to manually detect its leftovers stored in the deep system directories.

Here are the steps to detect and delete 1Password leftovers from your Mac:

  • Open the Finder, click the “Go” from the Menu Bar, and select Go to Folder…
  • Type ~/Library and hit Enter key to open up the user library inside home folder.

go to library -

Library (1)

Typically you will need to search for the items whose names contain 1Password or Agilebits (the vendor of the app) in the following locations:

~/Library/Application Support,
~/Library/Saved Application State

Warming: Mistakenly deleting items from Library might have destructive effect on other apps or even system, so make sure to identify the belonging of the files before deleting them. It is time-wasting going through each folder and searching for app leftovers. Luckily, you can exploit the Search feature to hunt down associated files:

  • In ~/Library folder, type 1Password in the Search Bar, and click on Library.
  • Identify the matched items, right click on them and choose Move to Trash option.

  • Empty the Trash to permanently delete all 1Password components.
