    Update 4.6.0 “Application Permissions”

      / March 03, 2020

    This release is aimed at protecting your privacy. Many of you have asked for more control over your personal data, so we’ve designed a completely new feature in the Privacy module and called it Application Permissions. Can’t wait for you to check it out!

    Keep your private stuff private

    Your applications may request additional permissions to access part of your Mac’s functionality or system features. Now you can control all those permissions from one place. Check what apps have access to your camera, microphone, files and folders, and adjust permissions to your needs.

    If you ever have a strange feeling that someone’s watching or listening to you, you’ll be able to manage permissions easily and stay safe.

    * available on macOS Catalina

    Update 4.4.0 “Space Lens”

      / April 11, 2019

    The entirely new Space Lens module comes out of beta. We’ve done our best to perfect it, and your feedback helped us a lot. Now it’s easier than ever to reveal space hoggers on your Mac and remove them for good. Can’t wait for you to try it out!

    Visualize your disk space

    Build your storage map and detect the biggest space wasters. These include unneeded applications, downloads, pictures, podcasts, system files, and whatnot. Review the uncovered files and remove the ones you don’t want to store anymore.

    Space Lens can analyze both Mac’s internal and external drives.

    Quickly decide what to remove

    You don’t have to check the size of what you’re considering to delete. Space Lens will display the size of all your files and folders, so you can detect the big baddies at a glance. Just select the files you no longer need and click Remove.

    We have to say that interacting with the storage map is strangely satisfying, no wonder you’ll be glued to the screen!

We’ve started designing a new tool for hunting down room wasters on your Mac and called it Space Lens. Even though the new feature is in beta, you can already start using it — it’s extremely helpful and cosmically beautiful. See for yourself.

    Update 4.2.0 “Bradley Spence”

      / December 20, 2018

    This release is aimed at saving storage space. Thanks to your feedback, and our user Bradley Spence in particular, we’ve picked a few more junk locations previously untouched by CleanMyMac X. But we are far from stopping here, though. And while we are busy coding new features, see the goodies delivered with this update.

    Mail Attachments go beyond Mail

    Not everyone uses the default Mail app. That’s why, we’ve trained CleanMyMac X to additionally remove Mail Attachments from your Outlook and Spark apps.

    Both are highly popular on the Mac platform and could potentially generate gigabytes’ worth of junk.

    Junk on external drives eliminated

    Many of you have requested this functionality — and here you are. Over time, external drives have a tendency to degrade into our remote trash bins. Now you can filter out all the outdated junk they contain.

    You’ll find external drives cleanup as part of Large & Old files module. There you can see how much free space is left on the drive or USB and take actions accordingly.

    New

    New

    • Time Machine slim down
      Slim down your local Time Machine snapshots to free up disk space. This feature is added to the Maintenance module.
    • External drives cleanup in Large & Old files
      Clean up large and rarely used files located on external disks and flash drives.
    • Outlook & Spark cleanup
      Remove Mail Attachments from third-party email applications.
    Improved

    Improved

    • macOS updates in Updater
      Now you can install system updates for macOS itself right from the Updater.
    Details

    • Apple notarization
      CleanMyMac X gets officially notarized by Apple as a software that has no malicious components.
