Can't remove Sophos PLEASE HELP

I am trying to remove Sophos from my mac, and I am asked for a Tamper Protection Password. I simply downloaded  the free home edition, therefore have no tamper protection password. Can someone please help. This is extremely frustrating.

  • I have had same experience. This software is a scam. Backup your important documents and reformat your computer immediately to remove it. 

     

    This is unfortunate as I use a lot of specific design software for work, which will require me a full day to reinstall all my software and plugins. 


    SOPHOS IS A SCAM. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. DO NOT INSTALL!

    Even after removal you will get the attached image everyday for the rest of your life. 

     

    I should also mention their support is incompetent. They respond with worthless terminal commands that are not effective. 

     

    I repeat DO NOT USE SOPHOS. SCAM CITY!
