Unparalleled Power

MacCleanse is the product of thousands of hours of intense research and development. It meticulously scans all of the nooks and crannies of a computer for unnecessary junk that can take up huge amounts of disk space!

Because of this, Apps in MacCleanse are also uninstalled correctly, catching the numerous logs, caches, plugins, and other resources left behind versus simply dragging them to the Trash.

Your privacy is protected and computer performance enhanced by MacCleanse as it wipes your web and app histories, and can toggle resource-hungry extensions!


MacCleanse can be configured to run daily, weekly, or monthly on a recurring schedule to ensure scans are performed regularly! No schedule set? It'll still remind you once in a while!
MacCleanse will prompt you to complete uninstall an app if you're incorrectly dragging it to the Trash.
Specify files and folders that should never get touched during a cleanup, or files that should always be erased.

Safe & Secure

Enhanced with the security of some of the most complex algorithms in the industry, MacCleanse ensures the data you want to keep is protected from erasure, while everything else is wiped! Detailed scan results also allow you to completely review what is to be removed prior to erasure.

Choose from a variety of erasure types from quick and simple to military grade. Ensure files are never undeleted even with the most powerful recovery tools!

The simplest and most thorough system clean-up I've ever seen. I always dreaded doing this stuff manually, but now I don't have to. What a lifesaver MacCleanse has been - not only for my Mac's personal well-being, but for my own.

Product works great!!!

Kelly Lowther

I have been using Mac since 2009 now. I was always a big fan of ccleaner for windows products prior to that but when moved to mac, i really did not find a really good product to clear the browser history, delete unnecessary applications and other day to day activities till i bumped into MacCleanse on Apple store. Since i bought it, i have used it every day to keep my MAcBooks running in good shape up until i upgraded to Os X Yosemite and it stopped working coz apple has not approved the latest version. I am so happy with this product that i am going to spend money again to buy the latest version.
