Uninstalling Grammarly from Your Mac

If you're a Mac user who has been using Grammarly, you might be considering uninstalling the software for various reasons. Perhaps you've found a better alternative, or maybe you're just not using it as much as you thought you would. Whatever the reason, this guide will walk you through the process of uninstalling Grammarly from your Mac.

Understanding Grammarly

 Grammarly is a digital writing tool that uses artificial intelligence and natural language processing to provide grammar checking, spell checking, and plagiarism detection services. It's a handy tool for writers, students, and professionals who want to ensure their written work is error-free.

Grammarly can be used in several ways. It can be installed as a browser extension, a desktop app, or a Microsoft Office add-in. In this guide, we're focusing on the desktop app for Mac. The uninstallation process may differ slightly depending on how you've installed Grammarly.

Why Uninstall Grammarly?

There are several reasons why you might want to uninstall Grammarly from your Mac. Perhaps you've found a different writing tool that better suits your needs, or maybe you're not using Grammarly as much as you thought you would. Some users also uninstall Grammarly due to privacy concerns, as the software does require access to your written content in order to function.

Whatever your reason, uninstalling Grammarly is a straightforward process that won't take much of your time. Let's get started.

How to Uninstall Grammarly from Your Mac

Quit Grammarly: Before you can uninstall Grammarly, you need to make sure the app is not running. To quit Grammarly, click on the Grammarly icon in the menu bar at the top of your screen, then select 'Quit Grammarly' from the dropdown menu.

If you can't see the Grammarly icon, it might be hidden. Click on the arrow in the menu bar to reveal hidden icons, then find the Grammarly icon and quit the app.

Open the Applications Folder: Next, you need to open the Applications folder on your Mac. This is where all your installed apps are stored. To open the Applications folder, click on 'Go' in the menu bar at the top of your screen, then select 'Applications' from the dropdown menu.

You can also open the Applications folder by clicking on the Finder icon in your dock, then clicking on 'Applications' in the sidebar.

Uninstall Grammarly: Now that you're in the Applications folder, find the Grammarly app. Click and hold on the Grammarly icon, then drag it to the Trash icon in your dock. Release the mouse button to drop the app into the Trash.

Alternatively, you can right-click on the Grammarly icon and select 'Move to Trash' from the context menu. This will also uninstall the app.

Removing Grammarly's Leftover Files

Uninstalling an app from your Mac doesn't always remove all of its files. Some apps leave behind 'leftover' files that take up space on your hard drive. Grammarly is no exception. After uninstalling the app, you might want to remove these leftover files.

These files are usually stored in the Library folder on your Mac. To access this folder, open Finder, click on 'Go' in the menu bar, then select 'Go to Folder' from the dropdown menu. In the dialog box that appears, type '~/Library' and click 'Go'.

Once you're in the Library folder, look for any folders that have 'Grammarly' in their name. If you find any, drag them to the Trash to delete them.


Uninstalling Grammarly from your Mac is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. Whether you're uninstalling the app to switch to a different writing tool, to free up space on your hard drive, or for any other reason, this guide has you covered.

Remember, uninstalling an app doesn't always remove all of its files. Be sure to check your Library folder for any leftover Grammarly files and delete them to completely remove the app from your Mac.
