Uninstalling RapidIdentity Windows Client

RapidIdentity Windows Client is uninstalled through the Windows Control Panel and uninstalls in a similar manner to other Windows applications; however, care should be taken to ensure secured authentication passwords are recovered.


To restore logon passwords, navigate to Main Menu | Authentication Methods | Manage Contactless Settings | Restore Logon Password.

If other users have secured their logon password on a standalone system, those users must restore their passwords prior to uninstalling or an administrator must reset their password on their behalf following the uninstallation process.

Additionally, in Windows 7 64-bit and higher, there are two separate RapidIdentity Windows Client applications installed during installation that appear in the Uninstall or Change Programs list. These installations are ONE Client and 2FA ONE Server 3.0 Client-Side Components.

Uninstalling RapidIdentity Windows Client also uninstalls RapidIdentity Server 3.0 Client-Side Components.
