How to *completely* remove Fing Desktop app from MacOS

Hi,

Can anyone please advise the best way to completely remove the Fing Desktop App from a MacBook Pro running MacOS 11.6.1?

I'm not sure that just dragging the app into the waste bin actually deletes it in it's entirety.

Thanks,

Mike.

    UPDATE:

    Deleted the app from the Applications folder and then found all the following components to tidy up:

    /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Application Support/fing

    /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Saved Application State/com.fing.app.savedState

    /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Logs/Fing/main.log

    /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Preferences/com.fing.app.plist

    /Logs/FingAgent/*  (Removed the entire directory)

    /private/var/folders/65/cx2b28413sj9f8www9lt54t00000gn/C/com.fing.app.helper.GPU/com.apple.metalfe

    (Removed the com.fing.app.helper.GPU directory and contents)

    /private/var/folders/65/cx2b28413sj9f8www9lt54t00000gn/C/com.fing.app

    /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.fing.service.plist


    Also found a FingApp background process running so a reboot was required to kill it.


    Would be great if there was an uninstall app supplied to make removing it easier.
