CleanMyMac X Saves Space, Removes Malware, and Speeds Up Your Mac

I’ve been recommending CleanMyMac to friends and family for a while now, and it gets better with every version. CleanMyMac X was released yesterday, with powerful new tools for optimizing and protecting your Mac.

The app, which ranges in price from a $40 annual subscription to a $90 one-time purchase, is a macOS utility for clearing out unneeded, unused, and temporary files. It has grown to include various optimization tools, including maintenance scripts, disk repairing, and the ability to reset various indexes and databases on your system as needed.

One of the reasons I’ve come to prefer CleanMyMac as a cleanup utility is its Safety Database, which whitelists important files so you don’t accidentally wipe them from your system—and prevent an app from working correctly—in the interest of cleaning. CleanMyMac X doesn’t delete important files or disrupt applications, and asks first if it finds things it’s pretty sure will save you space but doesn’t want to touch without your explicit permission.

This version of CleanMyMac also adds Malware removal, and combines cleanup, optimization, and protection features into one quick scan option. Scanning is faster than ever, too.

I’m also a big fan of its Updater tool, which runs through all of your apps and lets you know if anything is out of date. It works with all Sparkle-updated (most third-party apps) and Mac App Store applications.

Just as important, CleanMyMac X is gorgeous. The app has always been an elegant application, but this latest release really goes above and beyond with a UI full of design delights and subtle animations. Best to have something pretty to look at when you’re giving your system a regular tune-up.

Though CleanMyMac X is expensive, and plenty will argue that you don’t need any kind of cleaning application for macOS, the app comes with a free trial that you can use to see if you might benefit from a regular subscription (or one-time purchase).
