How to uninstall Cisco Anyconnect modules
A while ago I installed Cisco AnyConnect on my Mac, in order to VPN into work. Recently I noticed that a process acwebsecagent was logging multiple failures every minute to my system log; with a bit of investigation, it appears that the AnyConnect installer defaults also installs Cisco Web Security unless one chooses to uncheck it.
As far as I can tell Web Security appears not to be related to AnyConnect’s VPN functionality; it is a separately licensed Cisco service, and if it is not configured it appears to have a performance impact on one’s Mac.
If it is installed, you can remove it with:
sudo / opt / cisco / anyconnect / bin / websecurity_uninstall.sh
Uninstall other Cisco Anyconnect modules:
sudo / opt / cisco / anyconnect / bin / dart_uninstall.sh
sudo / opt / cisco / anyconnect / bin / nvm_uninstall.sh
sudo / opt / cisco / anyconnect / bin / umbrella_uninstall.sh
sudo / opt / cisco / anyconnect / bin / amp_uninstall.sh
Thank you for this post 🙂
Without this I wouldve reinstalled it manually, this works much faster
Thank you soooooo much for this post. I would not be able to remove it without your instruction and help. I am no programmer or have any knowledge about mac.
I have one more module that would like to get rid of which is &# 8216; system scan&# 8217;. would you be able to help how to remove it?
