Disable boot on startup

On my Mac, Dialpad automatically boots on startup of the device. How can I disable this? I couldn't find it in the settings. Thanks for helping!

    Hey Ahmed—

    With Dialpad selected, navigate up to the "Help" menu on your Mac header and select "Disable Run at Startup"

    Hope that helps!

    We use Dialpad at work and one of the most annoying and persistent problems is Dialpad launching on startup. On Mac, you can go into the Control Panel > Users and Groups > User > Login Items and remove Dialpad from logging in at startup, however it persistently adds itself to the login items.

    I've also tried to use the Disable Run at Startup under the Help menu, but it continues to automatically load itself after restarting the computer.

    This is a serious enough issue to warrant a ticket to Apple as well because it's code is maliciously placing itself in the startup loop without permissions. Even after removing it, Dialpad continues to add itself back in.
