Removing a device from your Microsoft Defender device list removes the device and any of its Defender-related data from Microsoft Defender but doesn't remove the Microsoft Defender app from that device. You'll need to uninstall it manually from that device if you want to remove the app.

Tip: If you decide to re-add the device, and you haven't uninstalled the Microsoft Defender app from the device, you can just start the Defender app on that device and sign back in.
