# MacOS – How to get rid of (base) inside terminal app in 10.14.6

bashcommand linemacosterminal

when I get a fresh terminal, my prompt says

(base) ~>


The (base) part is something that seems new.
How do I get rid of it?
There is one piece of customization in my dot .profile, namely

export PS1="$\e[32;1m$\w> $\e[0m$"


I also installed Conda recently, which might be related to that.

How do I remove (base) ?

• It's a conda's environment indicator that none of the "new" environments is active, instead the default one is active. "new" here refers to those created by: conda create --name NameOfEnv python=3.6 or similar.
For getting rid of it, add the line conda deactivate at the end of ~/.bash_profile.
Verify by conda info --envs.
