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!

Easy to use. I trust the result of the scan.

Bill Sorem

There were more logs on my computer than I ever realized, but not any more thanks to MacCleanse.

Stephen Miller

I'm a 78 year old disabled veteran with a progressive muscle disease. My current level of activity is essentially quadriplegic. I have minimal use of my hands and must operate my computer with a joystick for cursor control and a large button switch for clicking. My use of MacCleanse is essential because it minimizes the amount of navigation necessary to remove apps and files from my MacBook pro. This app really helps me maintain my hard drive free of clutter and unnecessary file fragments.
