Security applications are automatically uninstalled from devices that are marked for deletion in the following cases:

  • A device is running Windows.

    Automatic uninstallation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows is not available if Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10.0 for Windows is still in use in your workspace. We recommend that you prepare the distribution package of the latest version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.

  • A device is running macOS and the installed version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac is 11.0 or later.

In other cases, you must uninstall security applications manually.

Automatic uninstallation is scheduled to start every three hours. Other settings of automatic uninstallation can be changed.
