I've tried to uninstall through the app but it asks for a password from the "Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager administrator". I'm an admin for this account on the Mac so I should be able to remove everything manually. How do I do that? I'm specifically using version 14.0.1.

  • Tyson, weird. You just posted that link but when I go there, I get "Sorry, we can't seem to find that page." Are you logged in using your support account? I had this problem with a bunch of pages I found using Google. Jul 12, 2018 at 2:59

Looks like there's a tool that will completely uninstall Symantec software from your Mac. This page describes how it works. Here's the direct download link to RemoveSymantecMacFiles.zip.

In case the first link goes away, the easiest way to run it is to control-click on the download, choose "Open with..." -> "Terminal" and follow the instructions. You'll need to have admin privileges on the Mac but you won't need the "Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager administrator" password.

    Confirmed. This works.
