[Mac App] How can I hide Jomo on my Mac?

Tempted to remove Jomo from your Mac? We've got you covered!

This solution may sound scary, but don't worry, it's only an impression. Please take the time to read the instructions before you start - there's no hurry.

Open the "Terminal " application on your Mac. To do this, go to Applications > Utilities > Terminal.

Copy and paste this command into your terminal: sudo chflags hidden /Applications/; defaults write ResetLaunchPad -bool true; killall Dock
Press the "Enter " key on your keyboard (⏎ , far right).

The terminal will ask you for your Mac's password, enter it, then press "Enter" again (the terminal asks you for your password to apply a restriction that requires administrator rights to your session, in no case does Jomo have access to this data or will ask you for your password in any other context)

⚠️ Be careful: you will not see your password displayed in the terminal (neither in letters nor in *), but the entry is taken into account.

Jomo will now be hidden from your Mac.

If your Mac doesn't allow you to add a command, don't panic! Just give it permission.

Open System Settings (symbolized by a gear)

Go to Privacy and Security.

Then Full Disk Access.

Press the "+" at the bottom, then search for and select Terminal.

Remember to activate the switch so that it is displayed in green.

You'll need to repeat the operation from step "1. Open the Terminal application [...]".
