How To Uninstall Notion On Mac

Notion is a widely used app for note-taking and managing tasks that has become increasingly popular recently. Nonetheless, if it doesn’t meet your needs or you decide you’d like to uninstall it, here’s how you can go about deleting Notion from your Mac computer.

Step 1: Quit Notion

Before you begin the uninstallation process, make sure that Notion is not running on your computer. To do this, open the Activity Monitor app (located in /Applications/Utilities/) and look for any processes related to Notion. If you see any, quit them by clicking on the “Quit Process” button.

Step 2: Remove Notion from Your Applications Folder

Next, open your Mac’s Applications folder (located in /Applications/) and look for the Notion app. Once you find it, drag it to the Trash icon located in the dock at the bottom of your screen.

Step 3: Remove Notion Preferences

Even after removing the Notion app from your Applications folder, there may still be some preferences and settings left behind. To remove these, open Terminal (located in /Applications/Utilities/) and enter the following command:

defaults delete com.notion.macos

Press Enter to execute the command.

Step 4: Remove Notion Caches

Notion may also leave behind some caches and temporary files on your computer. To remove these, open Terminal and enter the following command:

rm -rf ~/.notion/cache

Press Enter to execute the command.

Step 5: Remove Notion from Login Items

Finally, if you had Notion set up to launch automatically when your computer starts up, you’ll need to remove it from your login items. To do this, open System Preferences (located in /Applications/) and click on Users & Groups.

Click on your user account and then select Login Items. Look for Notion in the list of apps and click on the “-” button to remove it.


Uninstalling Notion from your Mac computer is a relatively straightforward process, but it’s important to follow all the steps carefully to ensure that everything is removed properly. By following these steps, you should be able to completely uninstall Notion and free up any space it was taking up on your computer.
