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!

Very good software.

Michael Miller

This software is very useful to sort out problems. When the apple server software did not start properly after updating, I used MacCleanse to deinstall the server and reinstalled it again and then it worked. I tried other routes before but MacCleanse early helped.

Great little product to keep my Mac running smoothly. It's amazing what it can find to clear out and save space, even in a short space of time.

Aaron Macpherson

Running a MacBook Air with only 120 gigabytes of storage in it, I need every bit of it that I can preserve. MacCleanse is the perfect app to help me with keeping my storage use to a minimum and keep my Mac running smoothly. Everyone should own a copy. It's absolutely essential.

I like it because it easy to use and great to fully remove unwanted apps.

Remy Devorsine

I bought my first Koingo product as part of a MacUpdate bundle and really liked it, so when I got a special offer to subscribe to the entire product line with updates included it was a no-brainer. I use MacCleanse 5 most often to keep caches clear mostly, and also to clean up underhanded persistent cookies. I have had some problems with crashes during updates, so rather than new features I'd like to see fixes for the minor but annoying bugs. I've seen a list of suggested additional features and some look interesting so I'm looking forward to see which ones are implemented. I don't know where this will be posted but I clicked on the link to "Rate MacCleanse 5." I wasn't prepared for "my story" which is pretty dull.
