important

When you uninstall the ESET Management Agent from the client computer, the device is no longer managed by ESET PROTECT Cloud:

ESET security product may retain some settings after the ESET Management Agent has been uninstalled.

If the ESET Management Agent is password-protected, you must provide the password to uninstall, repair or upgrade (with changes). We recommend that you reset some settings that you do not want to keep (for example, password protection) to default settings using a policy before the device is removed from management.

All tasks running on the Agent will be abandoned. The Running, Finished or Failed execution status of this task may not be displayed accurately in ESET PROTECT Cloud Web Console depending on replication.

After the Agent is uninstalled, you can manage your security product via the integrated EGUI or eShell.
