You can simply download SuperSU from the Google Play Store on your rooted device. To start unrooting your Android device, open the app drawer and tap on the SuperSU app icon.

If your Android device is running Marshmallow and was rooted with a system-less method, another window will pop-up when you press “Continue”. This window will ask you whether you wish to restore the stock boot image or not. The stock boot image is necessary for OTA updates, so it’s always good to select “Yes”.
