If you want something really valuable, I recommend Pareto Security, which I discovered a short time ago through a recommendation right here in the comments! Check out their website at: https://paretosecurity.com/

In my opinion, it is the best and at the same time the most complete cleaning application for Mac. It's worth the price.

It's not a virus in and of itself, just an annoyance. Hopefully CMM will figure it out.

CleanMy Mac does not eliminate the popup virus alert. There is no virus until you click on the popup and scan. I don't know how it got onto my computer, I've not been to any questionable sites or downloaded executable files.

The app is running on empty. If it really cared about your security it would be more like Ventura than an outdated app that adds useless features that protect your mac. Check out https://github.com/ParetoSecurity/pareto-mac/releases/tag/1.7.61. Niffy app that tells you what you might not have realized is not password protected. Just my thoughts.

Really good application for me. Really. It doesn't slow down my Mac (never!) I tried to use my Mac with and without it open, the result is : no difference. It doesn't slow down the Mac ! My Mac is tip top responsive and the use of CleanMyMac X is for me very positive.

Malware in current version (according to other website reviews.) CCleaner is a better alternative. The freeware version does a fairly decent job at cleaning stuff, but go pro if you want more options like custom-cleaning folders.

the app is not bad but could be so much more robust. The cache cleaning, app uninstalling, and app garbage reduction is not bad but could be so much better. I still have to keep a folder of aliases to other folders and files where caches have to be periodically deleted as they cause the system, and apps to malfunction. CleanMyMac should have caught these but does not and offers no customization capability to have it perform "extra" cleaning defined by the user. Given the price (not cheap) it should be much better maintained in its subscription form. It's not bad, but great it aint. It is very pretty though. And yes, I pay for it for my family's 5 machines because it does make a difference.

I was really considering getting this Mac optimizer, but I'm glad I didn't do the same mistake of not reading the reviews before I bought Norton's 360 Deluxe and had an awful time with both the installation and customer support. I'm only looking for an optimizer because Norton offers one at $49.99 which I will not dole over due to it's atrocious customer service.

God, wish Id read the reviews first. Horrible. Mac running as slowly as ever, in fact worse as notifications keep popping up at the worst possible times, telling me that Im running out of disc space or an app that Im in the middle of loading is unresponsive. Also stuff that I would have imagined would be part of the clean up eg duplicate photos, are not cleaned, another app called Gemini has to be purchased to do that ! Only had it about a month, but will cut my losses and uninstall, although I can see from faery-floss, that this is going to be another problem.

Meh. A few years ago Mackeeper was kind of trash and In my opinion, CleanMyMac X was much better. But today in 2021 things drastically changed. Now MK much better (but not ideal) than CleanMyMac(( and a lot of undefined popups, like "this app is stuck. Let's stop it" but app was working fine! And all this happens quite often

После последнего обновления дизайн стал заметно хромать. Слепые буквы на светлом фоне. Не красивое меню слева. Дешёвый вид. Мне не понять, зачем менять и делать хуже, если уже всё было хорошо. Если вы - производитель, хотите что-то менять, то новое должно быть лучше старого. Вместо этого вы сделали всё так плохо, что я уже подумываю отказаться от вашей программы. Всё небрежно, неаккуратно и фонт слепой. Какой вздымны надо было новому дезайнеру всё менять??? Дизайн никуда не годный!!!

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. Before you even *think* of installing any of them, PLEASE read this: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-8841. There are now 76 (that's SEVENTY-SIX) programs 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 here. 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. Many have "disk" in their name, although disks, especially internal ones, are now a thing of the past. (Although macOS still comes with the storage drive initialized as "Macintosh HD," a quaint relic of a bygone era.) You are 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 : Avast Cleanup : AVG Cleaner : AweCleaner : Broom : BuhoCleaner : CCleaner : Clean Disk : CleanGeeker : CleanGenius : Clean Me : CleanMyDrive : CleanMyMac X : Cleaner One Pro : Cocktail : Combo Cleaner : Disk Aid : Disk Analyzer Pro : Disk BoostUp : Disk Clean Pro : Disk Cleaner : Disk Cleaner Pro : Disk Diet : Disk Doctor : Disk Expert : Disk Health : Disk Janitor : DiskKeeper Advanced Cleaner : DiskKeeper Cleaner - Modern : DiskKeeper Pro : Disk Manager: Disk Sensei : Disk Xray : Disk Xray Lite : Doctor Disk Cleaner : FastScanner Pro : Hard Disk Manager : HD Cleaner : iBooster : iBoostUp : iCare : iMac Cleaner : MacBooster : Mac Cleaner : MacClean : MacClean360 : MacCleaner Pro : MacCleanse : MacEnizer : MacMaintenance : MacMaster : MacOptimizer : MacTuneUp : Mechanism8 : Mojave Cleaner : More Disk Space : Omni Remover : Power Booster : PowerMyMac : Precious Disk : Pro Disk Cleaner : Quick Cleaner : SubRosaSoft Drive Cleaner : Sensei : Startup Manager : Stellar SpeedUpMac : TrashMe 3 : Washing Machine : WeCleanse : WinZip Mac Optimizer : Wise Mac Care : Wise mCleaner : XustoDisk : Xustomite :: END LIST :: The only system maintenance tools I recommend are 1) TinkerTool System, a true bargain priced at only $14 for a single license. TTS is a an exceptional piece of quality engineering, safe when used properly, and superbly documented, with in-depth tutorials for every option. One of its many components is called "Uninstallation Assistant," which will find and remove app components, probably better -- and more safely -- than anything listed above. 2) OnyX, from Titanium Software, has a loyal following and gets good reviews here. 3) I have used Northern Softworks' "Cache Cleaners" in the past (the latest being "Big Sur Cache Cleaner," which I have not used) and their products were always first rate. Still, the same warnings apply. You can't just go hacking into your Mac, removing files willy-nilly, not knowing what function they perform. As for the SEVENTY-SIX, 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

Why this obsession (imposed by the developers) to always clean, clean, clean his computer? Since I no longer use any "cleaners" my computer works much better!
