This question already has an answer here:

I had Wordpress' Jetpack installed but I want to completely remove it from my page. I deactivated the plugin and clicked on Delete in the WP Dashboard.

The files are deleted now, but in the database wp_options I can still find values for option names:


So my question is, if I delete the above mentioned Options is Jetpack than completely removed or do i have to do other steps? I can not find any resource which teaches about removing Jetpack completely and clean...

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You can typically check the plugin's source for actions it performs on uninstall (if any). In case of Jetpack its uninstall.php does remove some options, but none of those you mention.

It is hard to say what would complete removal be, without making thorough audit of before and after states of the system. It's pretty typical for long running WP install to have leftover options in practice.
