Maintenance softwares are fantastic tools that allow you to keep your Mac device running efficiently, but using them isn’t always very convenient. Since most maintenance apps are specialized, I’ve often had to download several different ones to achieve system-wide benefits – and it can be a headache to try and get all of these running properly at once. 

Thankfully, though, I found an easier solution: CleanMyMac X. CleanMyMac X offers an all-in-one solution that optimizes your system’s storage, security, and speed, and it does so without requiring you to dig through complex and confusing settings menus. With just a few clicks, I’ve been able to use CleanMyMac X to make my Mac as good as new.

Cleanup: Free up space for what matters most

As someone who frequently downloads new files all the time, I’ve noticed that in recent years, file sizes have constantly been getting bigger and bigger. Therefore, it has been crucial for me to get the most out of my Mac’s storage, and CleanMyMac X helps me do that with its extensive cleanup system. This system scans my Mac and removes miscellaneous files and data that are hidden away or that I never end up accessing. For example, the cleanup program has removed old log files, language files, photo cache data, and more from my system. These files are useless to me, but they take up valuable space that I would much rather attribute to university projects or things I’m writing for work. With just a click or two, CleanMyMac X cleanup gives me the opportunity to do that.

Protection: Guard against online threats

Malware and spyware have been a threat to internet users since the dawn of the technology, and that isn’t going to change any time soon. As someone who browses a wide array of websites daily, I can attest to the importance of protecting yourself against intrusive computer viruses. 

CleanMyMac X comes with a state-of-the-art Malware Removal module that thoroughly scans your system for malware, spyware, adware, and other malicious programs that may be hiding in the shadows. After the scan is complete, you can then purge your Mac of any found threats. Aside from protecting you from the important information on your system becoming compromised, this also will boost the overall speed of your Mac considerably. And thanks to consistent and frequent updates, CleanMyMac X’s Malware Removal will always be one step ahead of cyberthreats. When I used it to clear my Mac, I noticed that the system itself would boot a lot faster, as would numerous apps that I use for work and recreation. 

This software also features a Privacy module that you can use to wipe out all traces of your activities system-wide in one fell swoop. This includes chat history, browsing history, cookies, downloads, recently accessed item lists and more.

Keeping your Mac running as fast as possible is the best way to boost your productivity or improve your recreational experience, and CleanMyMac X’s Optimization system goes to great lengths to help reduce slowdowns. After performing a system scan myself, the module allowed me to remove or disable apps and programs that were either not responding properly or were using an excessive amount of resources. There’s a Maintenance widget, too, and I frequently use it to run maintenance scripts, free up system RAM, and repair disk permissions so that app errors get cleared up.

These optimization tricks take no time at all for CleanMyMac X to perform, and they’ve made a huge difference when it comes to my Mac’s speed and responsiveness.

Management: Keep tabs on everything

It can be tough to keep track of the countless files and programs that we keep on our computers. Fortunately, CleanMyMac X also comes with several useful management tools, and they’ve made staying organized a breeze for me. 

The Uninstaller module allows me to group my apps by developer, name, or size, and then I can uninstall apps I don’t need anymore with a single click. Unlike dragging apps into the Trash bin, this uninstaller will also remove background data as well. The Updater program, meanwhile, lets me scan all of my apps and informs me whenever an update is ready. I can then start downloading available updates within CleanMyMac X, which saves me a ton of time. Notably, it even lists the contents of the update for me so I don’t have to go hunting for patch notes. 

I also use this innovative application to review my system’s files with the Large & Old Files tab. Here, files are listed and grouped by type, size, and access date. This makes finding files I would otherwise struggle to pin down a simple and painless process. Lastly, there’s the Shredder tool, which is essentially a better Trash bin. All I have to do is drop whatever I want to permanently delete into Shredder and all traces of it, including background data that would normally be left behind, vanish.

Whether you’re working on important projects at home, putting time in at the office, or simply using your Mac to have some fun, the benefits of this software will change the way you use your Mac.
