I downloaded and ran a binary from their website (not a debian package) with these instructions. I can't seem to find an uninstall.

  • It might help if you link the site with the tutorial/instructions you followed to install it. Not everyone knows every software. And it might give people a clue on how to approach writing an answer for you. – Videonauth May 27 '18 at 22:13
  • And remember that pCloud does not perform a real installation. It's more an "on the fly" software. Indeed, if you quit the program, your pCloud folder will get empty. I suppose you can only remove all the files as suggested by the other users. – glc78 Oct 11 '18 at 21:00

Not official, but you can find most of the files with:

locate pcloud

(If no files are listed, run updatedb.)

Delete the following:


This is unofficial, so some settings might still remain.


I had the same problem and so I decided to contact pCloud directly. I was promptly informed to delete the following files:

  1. /home/current-user/.config/pcloud
  2. /home/current-user/.pcloud
  3. /home/current-user/.config/autostart/pcloud.desktop
  4. all instances of "pcloud" you have downloaded /home/downloads/pcloud
  • It's a bit disappointing pcloud still has no publicly documented and easy method of uninstalling their app. – Ryan Aug 10 '19 at 19:12
