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.

Still a mess. Cannot maintain Full Disk Access. When it loses access the only fix is to uninstall and reinstall. Verification and Repair function fails most of the time. When Security Prefs are checked it will be noticed that when Full Disk access is authorized the External Disk access function is not listed. Turn off Full Disk access all of a sudden External Disk access becomes available. Support is pleasant and offers help but nothing meaningful gets accomplished. Catalina has been out foresting etc for quite a while. It is perplexing that MacPaw still has no answers.

This program takes over your computer. It slows it down. The "health monitor" pops up constantly with false positives related to everything from free memory available the need for more junk file removal. Ironically, the best way to free up more memory is to remove this bloatware. You also can't Force Quit this health monitor, and if you remove the startup entry,, it'll just reinstall itself when you reboot. Stay away from this app. It cause more harm than any good it does!

My opinion was that Adobe support was the most "customer joker" in the world, but Macpaw is even worse and the refund is only theory... It seems completely useless (someone can tell why ever the RAM memory should be cleaned?) but also very tedious. I extensively use OneDrive and iDrive with about 1 million off line files. From time to time, CMM X decides to download them and completely fills up my Mac, with enormous loss of time. You simply cannot stop it. Uninstall and forget it for ever.

For years I have used CleanMyMac. I have found that CleanMyMacX has some flaws. I ran the auto scan and chose to fix the issues. When i reran the scan, I got the same results of what needed to be fixed. It's updater area is slow and does not show as much available updates as MacUpdate. including the updates to its' own program. So sad.

I've been using CleanMyMac (versions 1, 2, and then 3) for years, and I've been happy with it. But after upgrading to Catalina, I was forced to install CleanMyMac X—and I'm frankly shocked at how much of a step *BACKWARD* it is. The organization of the app is now confusing. We used to be able to run all of the major scans with one click, then review each one individually and decide which items to remove. Now you have to run the various scans one by one, instead of running them all with one click. How is this an upgrade? Furthermore, after scanning for mail attachments, we used to be able to filter the results by filetype. I email a LOT of music files, so it was useful to be able to view only archives or other types of documents, excluding the many music files I've emailed. But they've taken that away. Now you just get one, long list of attachments. How is this an upgrade? Furthermore, the app is generally sluggish and slow to respond. For example, after scanning for mail attachments, there are now disclosure triangles (which aren't immediately obvious) for showing the files found. But after clicking on them, it takes several seconds for the files to be revealed. Similarly, after running a scan, if you want to return to the main page, you click "Scan again." But after doing so, the app became unresponsive for a good 20 seconds. Previous versions of CMM *never* behaved in this way. And on top of everything, once you update to Cataline, you're *forced* to "upgrade" from CMM3 to CMMX. CMMX is *NOT* an upgrade. It's a *DOWNGRADE*. And I refuse to be forced to spend money for something that doesn't work as well and is harder to use than its predecessors. I'm profoundly disappointed.

DEAR READER: please navigate to https://www.thesafemac.com/the-myth-of-the-dirty-mac/ to learn why you not only DO NOT NEED and SHOULD NOT USE CleanMyMac, but why you you DON'T NEED ANY of the dozens of 'cleaner" software packages out there. If you need to delete software that didn't come from the Mac App Store, use the uninstaller if there is one. Otherwise a combination of iTrash and FindAnyFile do an excellent job. If you feel the need to clean caches, get TinkerTool System and READ THE MANUAL before you go HACKING AROUND macOS. AND BY THE WAY, to dear "iMacWare," who left a review here claiming to have tested this app against the "top alternatives" -- I call BS on you until you do a writeup of the results and post them for all to see. You're a MacPaw shill, if not an actual MacPaw employee. (And where do you come off using DISK DRILL'S logo as your meme?) MacPaw used to be a decent company -- no more. Gemini is now a deceptively priced ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION. CleanMyMac is just another overpriced entry in the Mac "cleaner" market space -- though granted it has a SLICKER INTERFACE -- the better to reel in the SUCKERS out there who think their Macs will "RUN FASTER" if they have a good 'CLEANING.' Buyer beware, they're all garbageware. -SB

Well said! I've been using and coaching people on Apple gear since 1987. I could nbot agree more with this comment from Shotblocker. CleanMyMac is just another overpriced entry in the SCAM Mac "cleaner" market.

This latest update has not worked for me. I still have the 4.5.1 installed, although I have downloaded and installed the latest update from the provider's webpage.

I used CleanMyMac 3 for a couple of years and then their X came out. I didn't immediately upgrade because I wasn't really convinced I needed the extra protection. Long story short, I got a browser malware virus, I kept deleting it and it kept coming back. So I invested in the CleanMyMac X because it claimed to detect more malware. Well, the software kept crashing 3-4 times whenever I did a browser extension scan. I sent the auto generated error report to them each time with my contact email. Never heard back from them. Finally called Apple and they helped me clear the virus and install a competitor's malware detection software. Afterward visited the MacPaw website and put in a support ticket for a refund (since it didn't detect or clear the malware and that was the ***only*** reason I upgraded). After 3 requests, I am giving up. They don't respond to my emails in a way that makes sense -- it's like they are responding to some other email -- it is in a nonsensical way that leads me to believe they simply don't want to give me a refund. So I give them 1 star for a product that doesn't measure up to their marketing and horrible customer service.

Used CleanMyMac for many years, now they come out with X and force you to upgrade, I bought version 1 and then 3, I skipped 2 as i did not feel it would be necessary to upgrade after just a year. I bought these versions outright and I thought I have it for as long as I want to use it. Well, now X is here and the old versions are not supported after a year and they force you to upgrade. Yes, downloading the new version is FREE, what a beautiful thing, till you realize you cant use the functions unless you buy the Full version, just to realize you'll have to buy the next version next year. Then you might as well call it a subscription. At least then ppl know they have to keep paying if they want to keep using it. Just SAD!
