Removing/Uninstalling the remoteit package or Desktop application

You can't remove remote.it software while using a remote.it connection, so for this you'll need to have either LAN or hardware console access to your device (which typically involves sitting in front of it with a keyboard and monitor).

 

Windows

Open the Desktop app and go to Settings->Advanced.  Click on "Uninstall" before proceeding below.

Debian based Linux

On Raspberry Pi OS, Raspbian, and other Debian-Linux systems, follow the instructions below.

Open a terminal on the target networked device, then run the following command:

sudo nohup apt purge remoteit

This will remove all scripts, binaries, and user configuration files. 

If you wish to leave configuration files in place, run:

sudo nohup apt remove remoteit

This will remove all scripts, binaries, but leave user configuration files. 

Red Hat based Linux
CentOS and Fedora also use the yum package manager used by Red Hat Linux.

To delete the remoteit package using yum, run:

sudo yum remove remoteit

This will leave any dependent packages in place.

To also remove dependent packages, you will need to first install the "remove leaves" option.

sudo yum install yum-plugin-remove-with-leaves

Now you can run:

sudo yum remove remoteit --remove-leaves
Arch based Linux

Arch and Manjaro use the pacman package manager utility.

To uninstall remoteit, but leave any dependent packages in place, run:

sudo pacman -R remoteit

To uninstall remoteit, as well as any dependent packages that are not otherwise needed, run:

sudo pacman -Rcns remoteit
OpenWrt Linux

OpenWrt uses the opkg package manager utility.

To uninstall remoteit, but leave the configuration file in place, run (as root):

opkg remove remoteit

To uninstall remoteit, as well as the configuration file, run (as root):

opkg remove remoteit
rm /etc/remoteit/config.json
