I added Meekan bot to Teams. It is like a virus. I cannot uninstall it. I mute it. It comes back. I block it...guess what it comes back.

 

I click uninstall and it disappears for a second. then it is back.

 

How can I get rid of this???

had this problem with one before, trying to recall what I did, but I think I ended up having to go to my portal.office.com homepage under my settings and remove the integration piece.

 

https://portal.office.com/account/#apps

 

See if it's there and just revoke permissions to it. 

Still doesn't take it out. Crazy. This is acting just like a virus. Reinstalls itself right after I uninstall it.
Good tip though, I found some other things I wanted out. :)
Try removing it via web client?
I got in touch with the company and they gave me the instructions; it's crazy that Teams doesn't own the uninstall ability.
To disconnect from Meekan's servers (and erase all your info) tell the robot "@meekan settings", to get to your settings page. It's in the last section: "Disconnect"

To remove to bot from your Teams, find the channel name, then click More options > Manage team. On the Apps tab, click Uninstall next to Meekan's name.
Note that this will remove Meekan for your entire team, and not just for you.
Interesting. Thanks for following back up so we know in case this hits for another bot or user!
