Editors' Review

CleanMyMac 2 identifies and removes files that your system no longer uses, and it asks if you want to delete large files that you haven't opened in a long time. This premium app's highly customized and animated interface is straightforward and pleasant to use. CleanMyMac 2 includes basics like a clean-up scheduler, a log-in item disabler, and an uninstall helper.

After a quick intro animation, CleanMyMac 2 presents a beautiful interface -- a sidebar with tabs and a details section. During a full scan, the app looks for log and cache files, universal binaries, language files, and other data that is not critical. The scanning process is quite fast: It took the software just over five minutes to scan our entire system and flag around 200MB worth of files for deletion.

We also like the helper that fully uninstalls apps, the iPhoto integration, and the option to clean code-signed apps. Another powerful feature: CleanMyMac 2 can improve your Mac's performance by disabling log-in items and background services.

If your computer feels sluggish, CleanMyMac 2 can improve its overall performance by disabling unused software. It can also help you reclaim system space taken by unnecessary files. With its straightforward layout and nice visuals, CleanMyMac 2 is a worthwhile download.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of CleanMyMac 2 for Mac 2.2.2.

"Caveat emptor (buyer beware)."

April 14, 2015  |  By wxsensei

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 3 3.0

Pros

None...unless one considers wasting one's money a "pro".

Cons

Deceptive licensing scheme.

Summary

My heart goes out to all the unsuspecting users that lost their critical emails and other files. This used to be a good application. Now, thanks to a deceptive business (lcensing) scheme and dreadful new features, it is an awful product. CNET, please reconsider your 4-mouse rating. IMHO, it deserves no more than 1 star.

"works fine every time"

February 10, 2015  |  By hudsonw

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 2 2.3.3

Pros

As with any software, if you set up the preferences as you wish, then you should have no problems. If you don't, bad things may happen as some endusers have noted.

Even though I use "Automatic Cleanup", I select only System Cleanup, iPhoto Cleanup, and Trash Cleanup. I also use the Uninstall feature. That's all I want and need to do.

I've used CleanMyMac since the beginning and never had a problem with this software.

Cons

none whatsoever

"Misleading Marketing"

December 04, 2014  |  By ivanotherview

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 2 2.3.2

Pros

Seems to work

Cons

Found items, but would not clean them until I subscribed

Summary

Its a ripoff marketing scam. They tell you its free, but when you ask to cleanup the things the program found you are asked to subscribe. Then it is a nuisance to uninstall it. Avoid

"Ok product"

February 12, 2014  |  By booch_21

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 2 2.2.2

Pros

Seems to work well

Cons

Really didn't need it

Summary

I've had my Mac for 3 years. I wondered if it needed some kind of "cleaning". This product came bundled with Parallels so I paid nothing for it. I hesitated to install it, but I did. I let it do its thing with default settings. It cleaned up around 8 GB over 2.5 TB worth of stuff. It found old/large files that I did not want cleaned up. Really, it only cleaned up installation remnants and language files that I'll never use. For that, it worked great. Otherwise, it really didn't do as much as some Windows equivalents that are out there. I'm sure I could have changed settings to make it more aggressive, but it doesn't seem necessary.

"Huge privacy issue"

January 09, 2014  |  By pyrame

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 2 2.2.1

Pros

I'm on a MacBook Pro with OSX Lion and CleanMyMac 2 license.

I noticed with amazement that CleanMyMac was the only "cleaner" to let explicit traces in the "Console" and in multiple files.

For example, the FULL NAME of securely erased files appears and remains in system.log, as, for example, in system.log.0.bz2 and system.log.2.bz2, log files located in the private / var / log.

Even worse, it is written that these files have been deleted with CleanMyMac ... If we wanted to be discret, it is failed !

And I'm not sure to have identified all the traces in all files!

Other deletion applications don't leave any traces in those files...

Cons

This is a HUGE privacy issue, because anyone can see which files have been deleted.

I no longer uses CleanMyMac until this problem is fixed.

"Must have cleanup utility tool for your Mac"

September 29, 2013  |  By riChyMartiN84

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 2 2.0.7

Pros

1. Frees up tons of hard disk space, leading to faster performance
2. Clears up your start-up program list to cut booting times
3. Uninstalls useless programs that are eating your memory
4. Great user interface
5. Cleans your mac in just 10-15 minutes, with just 1 or 2 clicks

Cons

None - With just $40, I avoided a hardware upgrade that would have cost me $1,000. Just can't complain :)

Summary

I installed Clean My Mac after reading this Mach Machines review about it. http://machmachines.com/cleanmymac-2-does-your-mac-need-it/

This is particularly useful software for those who haven't optimized their Mac for performance in a long time. When I ran it, it took just 14 minutes to free up 13.7 GB of hard disk space! It also cut my booting time in half and even browsing speeds are much improved.

A real lifesaver and I glad I found it!
