CleanMyMac X - This is new

With the update to CleanMyMac X 4.1.0 "Alex Zembrano" (explanation of the name see below), the module for managing extensions (extensions) is coming back. With this you can, among other things Browser-Extensions such as plug-ins, toolbars, dictionaries, widgets, etc. can be easily managed from a central location, or better yet, removed.

In addition, many apps can now be updated at the same time. This saves a lot of time, which is why it was one of the most requested features by CleanMyMac users. In the corresponding module you just have to select the apps to be updated and click on "Update".

Another cool update is available for the uninstall help. The so-called “Uninstaller”, which helps you to completely uninstall programs, now cleans up the residues of apps (folders and files in system areas, etc.) more reliably. In addition, you can go back to your initial stage with the Programs module. And the best for Steam users: CleanMyMac X now recognizes Steam programs, apps and games that you can select individually in CleanMyMac X and remove (their outdated versions).

In addition, CleanMyMac X 4.1.0 "Alex Zembrano" has a bug fix regarding an empty menu and an improvement in the malware scan. The malware scanner was extended to other areas of the system. All details and pictures of the update are available in the new “What's New” area the developer side.

Next CleanMyMac update with your name?

MacPaw now has a whole new approach to updates. The developers of CleanMyMac and CleanMyPC should now increasingly implement user requests. An incentive for users to bring their desired improvements to the developers is the naming of the updates after the suggestions. That is why the current update is also called Alex Zembrano - it is one of the users who wanted the extension management back into the program. If you use CleanMyMac X and you also have a good idea for improvement, please let the developers know; maybe the next update will have your name :)

    What does the manufacturer pay for this "tool", which crashes macOS when it is used and entails a complete reinstallation, for this new advertising text?

      Flori, you can rest assured. They didn't book that with me. I write this of my own free will and because I've only had good experiences with it so far. You are welcome to share your bad experiences here and I will not delete them - I promise. However, the matter is very subjective. There are both your cases that apparently resulted in some kind of crash, as well as the experience of another reader who had problems after the macOS Mojave update that was resolved after a run with CleanMyMac. I've been running the CleanMyMac X version since the Mojave update and haven't found any errors so far. But as I said: this is my personal experience ...

      I've been using CleanMyMac for several years and - really! - never had any problems. However, only use it when I know what I'm doing. So far there was no function that caused my computer to crash. My experience is that there is probably no alternative on the Mac market in terms of functionality and security ????
