If you've been using Wakefy and after uninstalling it the alarm keeps firing, you might want to keep reading to learn how to safely and completely uninstall remove Wakefy from your Mac permanently.
The reason this happens is because you probably uninstalled Wakefy while an alarm was set up, essentially giving Wakefy no time to turn any active alarms off.
This is a known bug that occurs under certain systems when you move the app to the Trash while the app is still open and it has an armed (i.e.: not muted) alarm. This happens because Wakefy relies on some system files to work properly and when you suddently remove the app, you prevent it from firing any uninstall or alarm muting routine.
Most tutorials out there won't work because they don't remove those system files that Wakefy relies on. But don't worry, we've prepared an easy uninstall script and a step-by-step tutorial that you can follow and get Wakefy uninstalled in no time.
The quickest workaround would be to download the app again or recover it from the trash, and mute the alarm from there. Renaming or moving the location of the Spotify app will also prevent Wakefy from firing.
Please follow these steps carefully:
chmod u+x /Users/username/Downloads/uninstall-wakefy-script.command
If you've followed the steps above (recommended) and it still doesn't work, here's how you can manually remove and uninstall Wakefy so the alarm doesn't keep firing:
crontab -l | sed -e '/#wakefy/s/^#*/#/g' | crontab -
