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

Absolutely do NOT download or use the current version of CleanMyMac v 4.8!!!! It is awful, buggy, crappy interface, cannot resize the window, has strange bubble windows hanging off of it. Ugly as sin and basically not usable. The previous version, 4.5 was fine as were earlier versions (have been using for years). Plus they have little to NO tech or customer support. Do NOT give them any money! Look elsewhere for this functionality as I will now.

Do yourself a favor and do not use this software. It removes files and renders other software unusable. This is inacceptable and if you do not know which files to manually remove to get more space on your mac, chances are high you should not be using CleanMyMac as you will not understand what it does and that will result in all sorts of unwanted behavior.

ABSOLUTELY TERRRIBLE - CleanMyMac labelled 200GB of footage on an external harddrive as 'junk', It then wiped the lot, which I didn't even authorise. I'm relatively tech savvy. All I wanted to do was remove some of the cluttered files on my mac but instead I almost lost a client. What made matters worse is that they have 0 support when you need it, so I had to spend £70 on another software to undo this and recover my files. Terrible company, stay well away.

Does what it says it will but check preferences first or you may delete things you were saving, such as emails and attachments. It's also a bit nagging until you turn off some of the irritants. I got CleanMyMac to help prepare for installing Catalina or Big Sur and it quickly erased years/decades of junk such as Apeiron scores. At the same time It found two Adware's that had crept in and were missed by Sophos and Malwarebytes. One nice touch is the menu bar mini app shows things such as network speed (with tester), memory available, CPU load and disk space – the same things I use Menu Meters for. So that will save me the cost of getting their 64-bit version.

*This is more about my disappointment with how previous customers were grandfathered in than the program itself, therefore not adding a star rating. Clean My Mac 3 was $39 full price in 2016. Support is now dropped as of Catalina update. MacPaw offers a 50% upgrade discount making Clean My Mac X $45. The free version looked nice and had more features than CMM3. Malware removal, extension viewer, update viewer for applications, a cleaner UI. Sounds like a neat upgrade, but given that the program is similar to Clean My Mac 3, there are many issues seen here on the review site, CMM3 is now unusable, and the discounted upgrade price is more that what was originally paid- I’m looking elsewhere . I interpret their explanation for not adapting CMM3 to Catalina as it was advantageous to charge more money than to provide crucial software updates to maintain functionality. This makes sense, its a business and they need to make money, its just poor choice for customer retention in opinion. I emailed support to express this and received the same explanation as what is posted on their website for lack of support for CMM3: "CleanMyMac 3 is still a reliable cleanup solution for the operating systems it was designed for (macOS 10.9 - 10.14), but adapting it to a newer macOS requires fundamental upgrades. So, instead of rebuilding CleanMyMac 3, we’ve created much more powerful and forward-thinking CleanMyMac X."

Since I no longer use CleanMyMac (the latest version was 4.6.5), the percentage of use of my Hard Disk has remained at 28%. Before, this percentage increased continuously ! Another aspect : The application finds a certain quantity of files which are good to erase, so that later it only erases a small part of it - the files which are not erased are called "Failed". There is a problem here ...

Good app with nice interface and I am considring the best in its kine, I've paid since version 1.0 but I stopped paying from version 4.0 cause I hate the annual subscription. I hate pushing me to pay annually even so no major changes since version 3. Why I should pay annually just to repair my OS upgrade. Dear Macpaw team, let your customer decide when to upgrade or you will loose many support fans like me.

Please don't. I paid for this app and it was running really nice until my Adobe Creative Cloud stopped updating and Adobe programs were failing to work correctly. After 3 days of trying to figure out with my Creative Cloud was not updating together with help from Adobe and after an IT professional I hired, he suggested that I would install everything from scratch on my new mac without the anti-virus software just to see if that was it. I did and everything was running well! Just to check (I could hardly believe that it was the cleanmymac software tbh) I installed the cleanmymac software again and ran it - and my creative cloud stopped working again. It is very clear that this is an issue that needs to be solved, what else is cleanmymac deleting that you would need? I paid already so that is wasted money but will be uninstalling the software today.

If you need an uninstaller and you don't want to pay for it... and you want a good one, get a copy of AppCleaner directly from the developer. The new MacUpdater is extraordinary, it will detect any app you have be it 32BIt, discontinued, on the App Store or not. Highly configureable and dirt easy to use. You buy it you own it. As far as Malware protection goes, CleanMyMac has it, kind of. There is no indication that its database is regularly updated like any responsible AV/Malware app. If you are concerned about Malware try MalwareBytes if you do not want massive protection it will run for free. Just what does CleanMyMac do for you that is so unique to justify its cost? The developer has castigated Onyx on its site for being deficient. They do not mention all of the free utilities built into Onyx... download it and look. It has many capabilities that are truly valuable that the very expensive and deficient CleanMyMac does not have. CleanMyMac still has one major problem that I have directly challenged the developer about since Catalina came out. This app cannot and will not maintain Full Disk access for any period of time no matter what you do! Follow all of their instructions, install, reinstall, authorize, reauthorize, it will not maintain full disk access. This profoundly affects the performance of the app. The developers talk a good game but when challenged they will demand the same data from you time and again and do nothing with it. You want a deficient piece of junk for your Mac at a ridiculous price feel free... but not me. This app does not deserve to be on the market with so many better and less expensive alternatives with truly responsive support and developers.

I don't know what everyone here is talking about. Look, I'm a minimalist and I like having as few as apps as possible on my Mac (but will not take anything less than the best so if I need extra apps than so be it). I love what Mac is by itself HOWEVER... Just the utilities the app has alone pays for itself. The Uninstaller is tool is much better than iTrash($8) and barley leaves any extra trail whereas with iTrash it leaves behind almost half the app. The Updater is superior to MacUpdater($10). It picked up on apps that MacUpdater never did. These two apps alone pay for HALF of what you're gettin with CleanMyMac Then you're getting Malware Removal, Privacy Clean up, System scan, Optimization, all with the best user interface I have ever seen I'll let you decide if that's worth $20

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

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!

A while back I gave a 5 star review. I have now totally reversed my opinion. 1) Constantly asks for full disk access when it has already been granted. 2) Completely unable to verify and repair disks. 3) Despite tons of data given to MacPaw to demonstrate problems responses are way off target! Suppose developers will offer fixes that are not fixes...ie deauthorize the app and reauthorize it to solve the problems...what a solution...works for about 5 minutes then the problems reoccur! DO NOT BUY THIS APP!!!

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'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 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.

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.

This USED TO BE the best cleaning app for Mac OSX, but sadly no more. It keeps prompting for a password to "install a helper tool". I quit the app after 25 prompts! Yes! 25 prompts --- that's way too many !!!! It's a shame it had to go, but there are a few freeware alternatives that do the same job; eg., Onyx.

Just dare mention this app on the Apple Support Communities website -- as I mistakenly did -- and the old timers there will do everything short of stringing you up. As far as they are concerned, CMM is scamware. Some of them will put you down as if their's is the only opinion that matters. It is serious group think there. It seems that the only acceptable apps similar in nature which are promoted at ASC are EtreCheck and Malwarebytes. I found Malwarebytes to be too intrusive for my taste, so I don't use it, and I rarely use EtreCheck, being as I don't have any serious issues on my machine. I had CMM installed for a short time to check it out, but after they berated me, and warned me about the dangers of using it, I removed it from my hard drive as well.

Also, the extension scan is limited to Safari extensions and excludes Chrome and Firefox extensions. I don't "hate" the product at all. However, this product is in decline while increasing in cost.

Every time you open CleanMyMac X, an application called "CleanMyMac X HealthMonitor" is launched too and will keep running in the background after you close CleanMyMac X. Even if you disable CleanMyMac X's "health monitoring" function in the preferences, the HealthMonitor application is still launched when you open CleanMyMac X. After contacting MacPaw support about it several times, I got the reply that they were "investigating". That was in November 2018. Still no way to permanently disable this function.

CleanMyMac 4.2.1…Just bought it, 1 year subscription. That is not good as far as I'm concerned, but I can live with it if there is significant, and continued versatility, and improved performance. Unfortunately, this app continues to fall flat on its face in 1 key area. Despite what support told me 30 minutes ago, before I made my purchase…CleanMyMac 4.21…just released CANNOT VERIFY THE SSD in my 2017 5K iMac. As I have said before Onyx a free app is fully capable of this. Why not use Onyx and quit complaining? It seems to me that any app that touts itself as fully able to maintain your app must be able to complete them most basic function to verify the SSD Boot Drive that many of us have! I am studying the rest of its functions now. But I do not like asking a question about an app prior to purchase and being provided with inaccurate information.

I am running both CleanMyMac3 and CleanMyMacX on my system at the same time for comparison. CleanMyMac3 will run until it is no longer compatible with the system. CleanMyMacX will run for another 305 days. There are features added to CleanMyMacX which make it interesting but there are also features removed that make CleanMyMac3 more attractive to keep. The ability to manage some of the macOS extensions, perhaps the most valuable part of CMM. In CMM3 you can manage extensions all from one place (nice) and you can manage "Services" (that huge in my book). CMMX removes the ability to manage services (what?!). CMMX also removes the ability to manage Quick Look Plugins, Siri and Widgets. CMMX removed the dashboard in CMM3. Some of the information is still available in the CMMX menu bar item like before. Frankly when I launch CMM any version I want that dashboard and the "Scan" button. I don't need a big pink iMac providing no value short of marketing a product to me that I already own.. (CMM3) or rent (CMMX). CMMX added internet connection speed. It's wrong and does not include upload speed which FaceTime users will need to know about. The price skyrocketed for the product. CMM3 was $40 purchased. CMMX is $40 to rent per year and to buy is now $90. Outrageously expensive for this kind of utility, especially since it can be 90% replace with a series of free or very low cost shareware items.. I **purchased** 6 seats of CleanMyMac 3 at discount, well under $40 * 6 ($240). CMMX is a per machine license even if you have two machines you use and cannot use simultaneously. (aka one at work, one at home). To **purchase** CMMX for 6 seats, $540? Really? Pass... So in 305 days (end of my rental period), CleanMyMacX very likely will be uninstalled by CleanMyMac 3 ;-)

I'm aware that there are many complaints about this app, most of which claim that it has somehow messed up somebody's computer or files. While I respect their experience and impressions, I've been using it on 2 Macs pretty much since it first came out, and I've never experienced any problem with or because of it. In addition, it gets better and better with each update. For me it's been safe, and has opened up a ton of space on my drives over time.

New release 4.1 still cannot verify an SSD formatted in Mojave. I could care less about the ability to clean out Steam Game leftovers if the app is unable to perform this most basic and essential function. Also, it is not as good at deleting apps and its leftovers as you might think. When you use Adobe's Un-Installer to remove Acrobat DC for instance, the Adobe app leaves a ton of executable files. When you use The new CleanMyMac it will leave a huge number of files behind. They may not be active but they do take space and you want them gone! Use any file search app and enter Adobe and you will be shocked to see all of the files etc. left behind. 40$ for this app? Not likely!

If you have an SSD and it is APFS formatted CleanMyMac 4.0.4 still cannot verify the drive! This is unreal. Even Onyx a free app is fully capable to do it. If you own a Mac with an SSD running Mojave and your drive is formatted APFS what do you gain by buying this app when you will have to use something else to verify it, when you can get a free app that is far more capable? I used to love this app, but it is not vet useful to me if this very basic function is unavailable.

Yesterday I downloaded and ran version 4.04 once, obtained from the in-app updates from version 4.03 also downloaded yesterday. It trashed a Time Machine drive by making it Read Only and despite everything I tried I couldn't change it back. Eventually had to erase and start it rebuilding my back-up. Even trying to erase the drive was problematic, I couldn't just erase the partition but had to reformat the whole drive. DiskTools and Onyx both report the drive to be in good order with no defects. Luckily I have two time machine drives which back-up successively. No response from the CleanMyMac team to my email.

NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME! BUYER BEWARE CleanMyMac X v.4.0.2 is currently not ready for prime time. There is no + function to add apps to safe guard via the ignore section for iMac Pro. I feel this app was rushed out the door before it was ready. Considering the price, we expect more...

If you have an SSD with APFS formatting DO NOT BUY THIS APP!!! It cannot even verify the Drive. Onyx a free app hAs been able to verify an SSD. with APFS formatting since High Sierra. Also now there is a subscription or a 1 time charge for near 90$. My experience with support is that it is a nightmare. When I requested info on when the APFS support would be available I get in return a response that the issue was closed! 3 tries same response.

I neither understend the „hate” reviews. Especially when they lack the objectivity and are based on an imature almighty-I argument. After all the app is quite useful as it gathers under one umbrella a lot of utilities that otherwise you have to handle running from one side to another of you machine. It is not hard on resources so it doesn`t cost you to have it running in background doing its job. It is not a scamware as some imply, the only dodgy thing that does is sending some data to some google related places... in other words after having your money on selling, it is also milking you for profit afterwords. A pettiness... a lack of ethics if not a greedy strategy. But now with the new version and the new prices the greed reaches a riculous level. 40 euros for one year subscription, 90 for life (with 50% off for upgrade) it is a... I don`t know how to put it... a buggery? Well... my love ends here, it is way too much.

I'll keep my version 3.9.9 to use as an uninstaller. (That's all I use it for) I'm not paying $40/yr or $90 outright for the next version upgrade for a program that produces questionable results and stability issues. Disc space on my hard drive is not an issue on my computer.

The app seems to work well, but I have a concern about privacy. Using HandsOff! I found out that when run it connects to Google Analytics. I can think of no good (for me) reason that a paid app would try to connect to this. I sent a customer support request and voiced my concerns and asked if there were a legitimate reason for the app connecting to Google Analytics and so far I have not gotten a reply.

I've been using this app since 2013. Extremely useful utility. They've moved to a new pricing model with $90 purchase price, or $45 upgrade, or $30/yr subscription, or it's included in the 100-ish app SetApp subscription plan. Last upgrade was 3 years ago and $20. I found the app so useful that when this new version came out I simply paid the $45 for the upgrade without much concern. So far the app has an updated look and works a little faster than the previous version. No problems. There *are* free apps which do some of what this one does, like Onyx, but not as comprehensively, and not as fully, and without a menubar app that shows RAM usage (and lets you free up RAM) and shows trash size (and lets you delete with a click). This app also sits in background and can fully delete associated app files when you throw an app in the trash (which would otherwise stay in the system), and can also check for malware. Onyx by itself doesn't do that. So yes, it's expensive, and it's also an expensive upgrade. But it works extremely well and I've found I got what I paid for.

DISCLAIMER: I'm venting a rant ahead, be warned. FWIW I'm not exaggerating a bit -- I can provide the full email thread I exchanged with MacPaw's support, which was extremely frustrating as they replied in the usual Microsoft fashion: blah blah blah, fuck you, blah blah.

//

I bitterly regret buying the two licenses for CMM and the two ones for Gemini2, these guys have no respect for users' privacy -- allow me to explain:

Back in the day when I bought CMM, it had an option under Preferences- > Privacy so you could opt-in, if you wished, to share 'sanitized' information about the way you use the app to help them bring more unicorns to the world, convert poo in rainbows and blah blah blah.

Guess what: at some later version - which? I can't tell, because they did this surreptitiously without PROPERLY INFORMING THEIR USERS - they REMOVED the opt-in option and made it COMPULSORY; now when you go to Preferences -> Privacy you're SLAPPED IN YOUR FACE with a message that reads: "All data collected by CleanMyMac 3 can be reviewed in the updated Privacy Policy. Take a moment to learn how we collect and store your information."

Well, MacPaw: FUCK YOU.

If this had been the way things were from the very beginning, I wouldn't complain about it (I just wouldn't buy the app); but they changed the rules in a totally unacceptable way along the way without even having the decency to inform their users.

I PAID FOR YOUR SOFTWARE and now YOU ARE HARVESTING MY APPLICATION USAGE AND STEALING *MY* DATA.

What is worst, how can anyone could trust that the information they HARVEST FROM YOU is truly anonymous and whatever? For what is worth to me, they are shady as fuck. Luckily I never went with a Setapp subscription no matter how many times they approached with numerous discounts.

The app itself is great, congratz to the engineering team -- but the fucker(s) who made the brilliant decisions to go ahead and screw me can go fuck themselves.

I'll be compiling a list of alternative applications that can replace any and every feature of CMM and publishing it back here. I prefer any day to expend the same amount of money on legit developers and F/LOSS projects than expending a dime on THIEVES like MacPaw.
