How to uninstall a protected agent?

Local Uninstall:

To uninstall a protected Hidden Agent, you need to first download the Teramind Agent Removal Tool. On-Premise or Private Cloud (Azure/AWS) customers can download the tool from: https://www.teramind.co/portal. Cloud customers can download it here: https://teramind.co/d/teramind-remover.exe.

After downloading the tool, run the following command on the command window:

teramind-remover.exe /PASSWORD=your_pass

Where, your_pass is the Agent removal password assigned in the Teramind dashboard (see notes below).

Notes:

  • /PASSWORD=your_pass is not required if it’s the same user who installed the Agent originally but mandatory if they are different users.
  • You can define the uninstall password for a different user from the Teramind Dashboard. To do so, click the gear icon image-200__1_.png from the top right corner of the dashboard, select Settings > Security. Under Agent removal protection, specify the password and click SAVE.
  • The remover runs in the background and will remove the agent silently within a couple of minutes. To learn how to verify the agent is removed, check out this article: How can I verify if the Agent is installed / uninstalled?
