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.

    I hate dialpad, the program is intrusive and all around garbage. Cannot wait for my company to find another provider. Customer service is garbage, call quality is garbage and the program is extremely intrusive, I try and close out and it keeps running and I found it running in the background even though I closed out. Upon startup it boots even though I have not given permission and blocked that from happening. The program constantly give my other sound applications problems or is incompatible. THE WORST.

    I agree with it constantly running in the background. I have to remember to hit ctrl + alt + delete to open the tasks bar and scroll down to apps running in background to close it...and click on multiple Dialpad entries that are showing running. It is a hassle for sure. I love the app itself, but hate that it doesn't shut off completely when I want it to.
