How to uninstall VPN? I know VPN client install some drivers, but how do you fully uninstall them? Can I use 3rd party uninstaller such as Iobit, Revo, or Geek to uninstall VPN client?
As long any of those software starts the uninstallation .exe that comes along with the VPN and you chose " every component ", you normally shouldn't get any issues. Just make sure after the process that there aren't any TAP adapters left under Network Connections.

Got damn it TechRadar! Thats a lot of aggressive ads and my normal blockers don't kill it. :emoji_grimacing:

Anyway, no I don't fully buy every little step that they write about because almost all is normally covered anyway when you use some of those uninstall softwares that you mentioned. Of course even they can miss some folder or log file but in general they do enough. Just try it and then check those steps in the article and let us know if it was valuable.

Is it okay if I uninstall VPN clients using 3rd party uninstallers such as Iobit, Geek, or Revo?
