So, I was given a link to install a program. That link could be pasted directly to terminal and it'd do everything by itself.
The message displayed after I pressed enter was that the <Program Name> was successfully installed.
Now I am trying to uninstall it, but I cannot find it anywhere. I regret to blindly install it like this, without knowing what it is or what's its purpose and now I want to make sure that it is removed but I can't do anything about it. Any help would be appreciated!

The command used to install the program was the following:
bash <(curl -fsSL https://******/install/JpQRby)
I'm not sure if there's a command to inverse this

I clicked on that link, and I got "
This site can’t be reached
%2A%2A%2A%2A%2A%2A’s server DNS address could not be found.

DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN".

You wrote "I regret to blindly install it like this, without knowing what it is or what's its purpose"

Are you meaning that you installed something without knowing what your were installing?

I ask because according to your post, you launched Terminal specifically to install something.

Where did you get the link & what program were you intending to install?

curl is a tool to transfer data from or to a server.
