You can also move the app to the Trash by these ways: (1) right click on the app and choose Move to Trash option; (2) select the app, and go to File > Move to Trash.

Most security software comes with a dedicated uninstall tool that can be used to effectively uninstall the app itself. ESET Cyber Security is no an exception. You may have noticed that there is an Uninstall icon when you mount out the installation package file of ESET Cyber Security, and that’s the app you will need to look for.
