If you installed GAT Shield on a trial it is a good idea to ‘clean up’ after the trial. Removing GAT Shield reporter is easy, it will be removed when you remove GAT+.
However, you must not forget to also remove the GAT Shield extension. You do this by returning to the Chrome Device Manager on G Suite Admin console.

In your Admin console.

Find the extension ID and select ‘Block’ – this will stop Shield from being active from the OU and your domain.

How to remove GAT Shield 5


If you installed the ‘WebCam ID’  you can use the same method and block it.

As each Chrome device or browser reboots or restarts GAT Shield disappears.
