How to Correctly Uninstall Popcorn Time on Mac


As a free BitTorrent client, Popcorn Time is downloaded by many Mac users. However, it may be illegal to use this software (which depends on local laws), as it allows users to watch copyrighted content. If you download the beta version, it may crash your Mac or cause other problems. Consider to uninstall Popcorn Time now?

For some users who try to remove Popcorn Time but fail to do so, this guide could be referential, as it summarizes two feasible methods of deleting Popcorn Time for Mac.

Method 1: remove Popcorn Time by using Osx Uninstaller
