How to uninstall forticlient without password?

0

I'm using Forticlient (v5.2.5.383) on OS X, and every time I quit the application it asks for my admin password in order to close. I've never seen such behavior from any other application — including other VPN software. Inputting a root password all the time as the standard operating procedure for using a VPN client is not exactly best security practice.

Why does Forticlient want an admin password in order to quit? And more importantly, how can you disable this behavior?

I haven't noticed any issues after simply killing the process, which does not require root privileges. Perhaps that's the best workaround, but I wonder if there is a good reason Forticlient wants root privilege or a better way of disabling it.
