Macs are easy to use. Mac cleaners should be too. CleanMyMac 3’s Smart Cleanup relies on just one button to scan every inch of your Mac and then remove the junk it finds. And, it only selects files that are 100% safe-to-delete, so you never have to worry about removing the wrong ones. It’s not just an automatic cleaning utility — it’s incredibly smart..
Smart cleaners are safe cleaners.
Our number one priority is keeping your Mac safe. We’ve been building our safe cleanup algorithm for over 6 years now.

Trim gigabytes off your photo library — without losing a single picture. It’s not your photos that are wasting space, it’s the hidden copies in your iPhoto library. You see, anytime you edit or rotate a photo, iPhoto creates a duplicate of the original and hide it for safe keeping. This means gigabytes of useless copies. CleanMyMac 3 cleans out all of them without harming any of your photos.
Mail is a lot heavier than it looks. Each and every attachment you receive in Mail, from PDFs to signatures, get saved to your Mac. Know what that amounts to? A lot. Plus, if you want to manually clean out those gigabytes of attachments, you’d have to crawl through your entire mailbox searching for every single paper clip. Save yourself the trouble — CleanMyMac 3 is happy to take care of it for you.
There’s more than just tunes in your iTunes. iTunes stores gigabytes of files other than your music, including outdated device backups, old software updates, broken downloads, and more.
