Advanced Mac Cleaner Description
It is a well-known fact that malware for OSX is now available, and users of Mac computers and laptops should take the required measures to protect their devices. However, harmful malware is by far not the only problematic software that Mac users should look out for – there are also countless of Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs), which, while not unsafe, can be very annoying to deal with. A popular example of such a PUP is the Advanced Mac Cleaner, a system optimization utility, which might provide false results so that it appears more efficient than it really is.
The Advanced Mac Cleaner is not advertised as a paid software suite – both its official website and its advertisements offer a free download. What users might not know is that the free version of the Advanced Mac Cleaner is limited in terms of functionality – it can only serve as a scanner that will check the system for issues, and then generate a report with the recommended fixes and optimizations. The Advanced Mac Cleaner application also may provide information about the estimated importance of certain fixes. After this, users will be offered to purchase a full license of the Advanced Mac Cleaner, which will unlock the rest of the software's features and enable it to take care of all pending issues automatically. However, the verdict of security companies seems to be that the Advanced Mac Cleaner software will exaggerate this report to make the product appear like a valuable purchase.
Having the trial version of the Advanced Mac Cleaner on your computer also may be an annoying thing to deal with since the program is configured to display regular reminders and notifications that there are pending issues that must be fixed – another aggressive marketing strategy meant to get users to spend their money on this PUP. It is clear that the Advanced Mac Cleaner application uses shady marketing practices to inflate its value artificially, and we would not recommend buying a product like this. It is advisable to take care of the Advanced Mac Cleaner's removal with the use of an up-to-date Mac security utility.
