How to uninstall the Securly SSL Certificate from BYOD devices?

Follow

The Securly SSL Certificate is important to help us effectively filter categorized HTTPS sites. The SSL Certificate is only required when on a network that is forwarding its internet traffic to Securly (with the exception of traffic being applied the Guest Network Policy).  If a BYOD device is no longer on such a network, the SSL Certificate is inert and provides no function whatsoever. If a user is no longer on a network filtered by Securly and would like to remove our SSL Certificate, this document will explain the simple steps necessary for its removal. We do caution that it's important you only remove the Securly SSL Certificate as all other SSL Certificates in the Trusted Root are necessary for successful everyday web browsing.
