System settings and permissions for CleanMyMac X on a Mac

To enjoy all features of CleanMyMac X without restrictions from macOS, you need to:

  • Grant the Full Disk Access permission to all components of CleanMyMac X (learn how).
  • On macOS 13 Ventura, allow all login items of CleanMyMac X (learn how).

Full Disk Access is a security permission that allows the apps you install on your Mac (like CleanMyMac X) to access files, macOS settings, and other apps on your computer. Giving Full Disk Access to CleanMyMac X is easy and absolutely safe. Read more in Full Disk Access for CleanMyMac X.

Login items are service programs that launch automatically and perform small tasks for their "main" app. Read more in Login items of CleanMyMac X on macOS Ventura.

Apps often ask for non-system (private) permissions using alerts in the upper-right corner of your screen. For example, when you open CleanMyMac X for the first time, the app is asking to allow its notifications. You just need to choose Allow or Don't Allow.

But settings and permissions for the entire system (such as Full Disk Access and login items) may only be granted in System Settings on your Mac.
