- Remove Safari Extensions on Your Mac Manually
There are 2 manual methods available. These are the official methods implemented by Apple. You can either remove the extensions manually from Safari browser or do it via Finder. So, let's have a closer look at both of them.
1. Remove Extensions from Safari Browser
In this method, you will directly remove unwanted extensions from the Safari browser. So, here's guide to do:
Step 1: You need to launch Safari and click on the Safari Menu.
Step 2: Click "Preferences" from the drop menu and choose the "Extension" panel.
Step 3: In the Extension panel, you will find all the plugins that you wish to remove.
Step 4: Simply, click on the "Uninstall" button and they will be removed.
If you look at this objectively, this is also a quite simple procedure and can be executed very easily. Now, let's look at the next procedure.
2. Remove Safari Extensions Using Finder
There are some Safari extensions that are stored inside the user library folder. The only way to access it is via Finder. You have to click on the user's name in the Finder and then click on the Library folder.
But if you are unable to find the said folder, you have to go to the Finder menu and click on the "Go to Folder". Here, you have to type "~/Library" inside the text box.
After that, here's how to remove Safari extensions on Finder:
Step 1: Open Safari and double-click on Extensions.
Step 3: Now, you will find that Safari is quite different from other browsers. The extensions here will be names and it's easier to identify. So, just select a specific extension and drag it to Trash.
Lastly, you should be sure to clear the Trash bin.
