I'll be honest, I have used CleanMyMac since came back to Mac OS X in 2009. I was using CleanMyMac for good ol' Mac OS Snow Leopard. I'll admit, it had its up's and its downs, and the company had a bunch of learning to be done from that point until now... MacPaw makes a mean and lean Mac tuning kit. It's the premier uninstaller and hidden files finder... I have tested the top alternatives and they miss what CleanMyMac automatically finds with its "Health Checker", which allows you to get rid of rubbish that other apps leave behind. Mac Paw is an amazing company, and I use CleanMyMac and Gemini to maintain my families Mac computers... I wouldn't dream of putting other dangerous and possibly maliciously built "Tweakers" on my computer. Mac Paw has your back. Download the software directly from Mac Paw's website or you risk getting a tampered installer.

I'm giving CleanMyMac X a try today on my 27" inch iMac. I had a clean upgrade to Catalina, and while everything seems to be working fine, I've had a few apps with minor issues, which seem to point to the app itself. Anyway, with that said, Onyx hasn't been updated for Catalina yet, so I wanted to run a cleaner to give my mac that clean sense without just doing a full up clean install. So far, i haven't seen anything suspicious, and everything seems to run clean and fast. I was hesitant to install this, but I think people confuse it with MacKeeper, which is known to be a problem. Typically I don't use cleaning utilities, however, at least in recent years MacPaw seems to have a good reputation, and whenever i Google for mac maintenance help, they usually are at the top of the list, providing the Clean My Mac solution, and the manual solution. With this said i figured I would give their software a try and see how it is.

The worst customer care in the history of computer programs. I have used CleanMyMac for many years and other than the slow speed, I have been pleased with the program. I decided to "upgrade" to X a few days ago. Constantly throughout the day, I received a pop up menu from the program announcing that "Something has gone wrong." I describe the issue and forward it to the non-caring folks at MacPaw with no reply and no help. I have written to them asking for the promised refund within 60 days and big surprise - NO REPLY. As an aside, their Malware module is useless and fails to find many issues with Malware. Find a program supported by a company that gives a crap - unlike these derelicts!

I don't understand all the negative, comments. When ONYX came out they warned... "if you don't want to destroy your mac, "READ DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY". Clean my mac can be used as a memory cache and functionality cleaner. Just un-box and every week or so just scan and clean. Then watch your Mac run faster. Which it will! It can also be used as a maintenance tool for those who, "read the instruction", for those who don't and try things that they don't understand it will make bad things happen, just as ONYX did. Some of the horror stories from ONYX reviewers were really bad and some completely destroyed their macs. I have been using clean my mac since the beginning. I had two mac book pros in the past and now have two mac minis. I have clean my mac 3 on one and clean my mac x on another. My thought's (I don't give advice) just use it to clean your mac when it runs slow (you can free up space while in the middle of a project, AWESOME FEATURE). Disable the large file feature, unless you know exactly how it works, Don't do maintenance. DONT DO ANYTHING but keep your mac clean, you won't have any problems. PLEASE PLEASE Check out the Privacy Feature... the number of Cookies accumulated... WOW! ...Web Developer for over 15 years, used Clean My Mac since it came out.

A lot of them are marketing scams. Some may have installed from a DMG file that has been tampered with. Most people don't realize that they need to go directly to Mac Paw and download from their servers.... Or you risk downloading an illusory monstrosity posing as CleanMyMac...

Can't believe it but this edition is excellent. My only issue is that it does not completely uninstall apps as other dedicated apps do.

Great app! After cruising youtube or any google site it finds GBs of tracking cookies, cache file, etc. and can delete them... The more hours you cruise the web the more you need CleanMyMac X!

Hey, it does a great job with cookies and other files. Only thing it misses is some Chrome, Firefox and Safari modules. Have you tried Cookie to finish up the job and really scrub it clean? It works great!

Bloated and expensive. But worst of all: even though you disable the background "monitoring" function in the preferences, it's still running, and you can't turn it off; when you use force quit, it's launched immediately again. Avoid.

Even when you disable the "Health Monitor" in the preferences, it runs in the background regardless, and it's now impossible to shut it down manually – it no longer responds to force quit.

I've just about had enough of this bloated piece of junk.

It looks like you can actually quit it, but it's launched immediately again afterwards with a new PID number.

Not quite useful, and real funny customer service.
I found that this app will try to connect to shared drives at startup, even if you're not in the same network. Instead it keeps popping up cannot connect to xxxx server warning.
I reported this issue, the reply is I should disable firewall or any security app like little snitch....in case such apps prevent this app connect to their server.....
Excuse me?
After I pointed out that this had nothing to with their server. They just went to silence, and stop replying my emails.
Real funny.
I won't spend another penny on this company.

Besides that, this app is pretty useless. The uninstaller feature, will leave a lot of trash files...nothing better than the free AppCleaner.
The startup cleaner feature, will make lots of trouble, if you happened delete some startup item you shouldn't delete.
Trash scan is trash too... the results usually are cache file(which will speed up apps process, and it will mark screensaver's video file as trash...), language files, logs, nothing more....
A pretty much a useless app beside the beautiful UI...
and "responsive" customer service.
