CleanMyMac X: download, installation, trial period
If you have downloaded the CleanMyMac X app from the linked MacPaw website, you need to run the .dmg file from the Downloads folder. You then drag the app icon into the Applications folder and can remove the CleanMyMac drive from the desktop (right click -> Eject). So it's a completely normal procedure, like with other apps downloaded from the web.
After opening the app, you grant a few permissions via the system settings (so that you can scan the hard drive and detect junk data and malware) and start using it. If you want to start cleaning the hard drive after the scans, you have to start the 7-day test period. You will be redirected to the website again. The good thing: from now on the cleanup is no longer limited to 500 MB. So you can get rid of gigabytes of data waste in a free period.
