Is it safe to uninstall Intel Security True Key?

It randomly appeared on my laptop today. And when I logged into my computer again it had a little button at the bottom of the screen with the option to skip the password screen. Like, no, I don't want it there. I always want the password to be a thing cause I don't trust anyone on my laptop.

I have no clue where the Intel thing came onto my laptop all of a sudden.

Yeah I have Win 10.

It was installed on my laptop without my permission probably during the installation of another program. I uninstalled it immediately without any defect until now so i guess it is OKAY.

Do you have McAfee AV? Intel will sneak TrueKey on a McAfee update. It can also be installed on an Adobe Flash update.

It's okay. I uninstalled and everything seems to be working fine again :) Thanks though.
