My colleague has noticed there is a Chromium icon on their launchpad screen but it's not possible to remove it. We've tried dragging it to the Trash but nothing happens.

There is no app listing in /Applications

Is it a virus? If so what's the best way to remove it?

    How did you drag it to the trash from inside Launchpad?

Check System Profiler → Software → Applications to see if you have it installed somewhere else. You can see where it's installed to by looking at the "Location" tag.

If it looks fishy, I'd recommend downloading Malwarebytes and running a scan to see if there's anything fishy.
