We are updating YouGov Pulse.

In order to access the updated version of Pulse and keep earning points, you must first uninstall the YouGov Pulse app and reinstall it on your device. This article will show you how to uninstall the app from both a Windows desktop device and a MAC desktop device.

Windows desktop

Step 1 – To uninstall the desktop app, open the control panel and select “Uninstall a program” from the “Programs” section.
