What if you have uninstalled Zoom? It seems that it leaves a web server on your machine that will re-install Zoom if it receives a request to join a meeting.





Really? That’s nuts. Makes you appreciate the iOS app model a bit more.

Everything sandboxed, delete an app and all traces of it are gone.


macOS is gradually adopting that starting with Catalina, e.g. System Extensions (that will replace Kernel Extensions) and DriverKit drivers too I assume, are installed with app bundles and uninstalled when the app is trashed.

Unfortunately neither of those would help in this case.

As far as I can tell you can't fix this and still be able to do web development on the same machine.
