    How to find and eliminate unwanted applications
    Found some application called "Bee Aware" it was not visible in the applications folder. It was not easy to get rid of it. Is there a way to find and get rid of these invisible applications?

    What do you mean by "applications folder?" This is a forum for iOS, the operating system for iPhones and iPads, where there is no applications folder.

    We moved your post to the correct forum: macOS

    Not all applications will install to the "Applications" folder. Not sure what you mean by "invisible applications"?

    You might want to check System Preferences, other apps. That's usually the last row of apps and preferences.

    Also, some apps will install a small icon to your top menu bar.

    BeeAware is adware. You can easily get rid of adware with this free product:

    DetectX Swift (free)
    DetectX – sqwarq | security for your mac

    I'd tell you how to generally look at and delete invisible software...but in general software that is invisible is invisible for a reason. Ordinary users shouldn't be messing with invisible software. If you are infected with adware or malware, there are utilities that you can use to remove it.
