MacCleanse9.0.7

25 February 2021

Selectively erase logs, caches, activity, and more.

Overview

MacCleanse is the product of thousands of hours of intense research and development. It meticulously scans all of the nooks and crannies of a computer for unnecessary junk that can take up huge amounts of disk space! Because of this, Apps in MacCleanse are also uninstalled correctly, catching the numerous logs, caches, plugins, and other resources left behind versus simply dragging them to the Trash. Your privacy is protected and computer performance enhanced by MacCleanse as it wipes your web and app histories, and can toggle resource-hungry extensions!

What's new in MacCleanse

Version 9.0.7:
Bug Fix:
  • Main window background color now updates on the fly when switching between light/dark mode
  • Fixed autofill for name/email in support dialog
  • Fixed emptying trash on remote volumes

Nothing much to add to my previous note on 9/26/20 except that there are now 75 (that's SEVENTY-FIVE) "cleaner" apps on MacUpdate. I won't clog up the review space by naming them all -- I've done so in other reviews. The market was beyond saturated years ago. And now: Deluge. -SB

This is not a review per se, it is a discussion of the class of software to which this program belongs. As a public service to the MacUpdate community, I've found as many of these "cleaner" apps on this website as I could and listed them them below. (I did a search for 'cleaner'.) If MacUpdate will let me, I intend to post this every time a new or updated version of one of these things shows up on this site. There are 42 in the list, and it seems like new entries in the 'Mac cleaner' market space pop up every day, metastasizing like a cancer. Unfortunately, more is not better. They are all of dubious value. Many have no reviews at all. Many have what look to be essentially fake 5-star reviews with no useful commentary. Many -- probably the most accurate and honest -- have negative reviews, by users who have been burned by them. Most of the developers' descriptions boast about what a great job they do, but the truth is, there are no good, comprehensive, head-to-head reviews of these programs by impartial 3rd parties. True experts in macOS maintenance advise against using any of them, because in general they serve little useful purpose and they can easily do more harm than good. Macs simply do not need "cleaning." (See for example: https://www.thesafemac.com/the-myth-of-the-dirty-mac/) Some of these programs are notorious for being little more than malware. The user is well-advised to read any program documentation and make a RELIABLE BACKUP before attempting any changes. If I have missed any programs that should be on the list, please leave a comment and let me know. I will rate all these programs with one star, probably one more than they deserve. And I would appreciate comments. If you disagree, please speak up. But if all you can come up with is 5 stars and a sentence or two saying that program X is great and I don't know what I'm talking about, please save your breath. No one here will take you seriously. And I apologize for the almost unreadable formatting, a severe limitation of MacUpdate itself, which compresses maximum text into minimum space, leaving no whitespace for readability. :: BEGIN LIST: : Aooro : AppCleaner & Uninstaller : AutoTrash : AweCleaner : CCleaner : CleanGeeker : Clean Me : Cleaner One Pro : CleanMyMac X : Cocktail : Combo Cleaner : Disk Aid : Disk Cleaner : Disk Cleaner Pro : Disk Expert : Disk Health : DiskKeeper Advanced Cleaner : DiskKeeper Cleaner - Modern : DiskKeeper Pro : Disk Xray : Doctor Disk Cleaner : HD Cleaner : iMac Cleaner : MacBooster : Mac Cleaner : MacClean : MacClean360 : MacCleaner Pro : MacCleanse : MacEnizer : MacMaintenance : MacMaster : Mojave Cleaner : PowerMyMac : Pro Disk Cleaner : Quick Cleaner : Sensei : Stellar SpeedUpMac : TrashMe 3 : Washing Machine : WeCleanse : Wise Mac Care :: END LIST : :: The only system maintenance tools I recommend are 1) TinkerTool System, a true bargain priced at only $14 for a single license. TinkerTool System is a an exceptional piece of quality engineering, safe when used properly, and superbly documented, with in-depth tutorials for every option. 2) OnyX, from Titanium Software, another excellent developer. 3) I have used Northern Softworks' "Cache Cleaners" in the past (the latest being "Catalina Cache Cleaner," which I have not used) and their products are first rate. As for the rest, listed above, it is safe to say that nobody who really knows what they're doing with Macs and macOS will touch them. Don't get sucked in by a pretty interface. You may very well regret it. -SB

All the five star reviews below are fake, click on their profiles and you can see that they've visited MacUpdate a grand total of 1 time - to make these fake reviews. Also, the fact that this costs a hundred bucks when there are numerous alternatives that do the same or similar jobs for under $20 also should tell you to be very wary.

As many others have noted below, the probably useless (if not harmful) MacCleanse gets the most FAKE 5-star, one-sentence "reviews" of any product on MacUpdate. This shows great initiative on the part of the developer, creating all those FAKE reviewers with creative, fingers-dancing-on-the-keyboard, names. (gaedwebmunha? helengonzaleszx34szrfgbv?) Therefore I award MacCleanse 5-stars (*****) for garnering the most FAKE 5-star reviews. Quite an accomplishment. Also, 5 more stars for price inflation. A few short years ago, MacCleanse was $30, but now it's $99. Nice job, Koingo! Keep up the good work! GENTLE READERS, if you really want to "clean" your Mac, buy TinkerTool System, and READ THE MANUAL before you go HACKING AROUND macOS with some overpriced piece of crapware. -SB

This should be sold on late night infomercials. Do you have more money than you know what to do with? uh huh. Do you want to waste it on a ridiculously overpriced product meant for the simple minded too gullible to know better? uh huh. Then install this useless logic-turd and accomplish NOTHING!

I originally gave this app 5 stars. But after using it now for over a month I have real concerns about it. It has the nasty habit of deleting activation from various apps. Nothing more frustrating than starting up an app that you use regularly only to have it tell you that you are in Trial Mode and that you need to purchase or activate the app. After this happened a couple of dozen times I was finally able to conclude that this app can be deadly. Even run in its Safe Mode you are in possible jeopardy. My advise...stay away. I have tried to address the developer regarding this and never get a response. The site only says that the developer works by himself and will get back to you when he can...to my experience that means never.
