"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!

"Post Clean Experience Leads To Tourette's."

May 24, 2013  |  By Rufus_B

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 2 2.0.3

Pros

Lots of features, great UI.

Cons

Functionality of my computers diminished after use.

Summary

I've used both CMM and CMM2 on PPC/Intel based macs. After removing a stunning amount of unwanted or unused files in the form of several gigs and indeed reclaiming hard drive space, all my machines, after reboot, went to hell. Programs hung, CPU percentages for some processes were haywire, memory leak, etc, registration issues with third party font programs.
Fixing permissions resolved some issues but ultimately, for me, clean reinstalls of OS were needed to regain use.
If you do intend to use this program then:
-Read threads on company website for any current problems/workarounds etc and download latest software versions for your machine.
-Create a backup, ie: Time Machine, before using this product. (Manufacturer states this). Can't stress this enough!
-Exercise caution before using automated cleaning. Do some research into what will be removed and tailor your cleans.

The likelihood is I won't be using this product again because the experience was laced with anxiety and frustration. It's a pity because it's obvious a lot of development has gone into it but far too many headaches (and a few days of lost productivity) for the sake of reclaimed space.

"If it's not broke then don't fix it."

April 15, 2013  |  By digital dude--2008

 |  Version: CleanMyMac 2.0.1

Pros

Attractive interface and easy to navigate

Cons

Not sure I believe some of what it reports. As a photographer I know when photos are rotated and the list that it shows is not accurate. Also, it arbitrarily removed much-needed plug-in's for my Adobe products. The fact that the program also wants to remove unused files of a month or longer is frightening!

Summary

It may work for some but for me - no way
