CleanMyMac X Trial

CleanMyMac X is a paid application that requires either a license or subscription to unlock all its features. However, you can try CleanMyMac X for free before making a purchase at our store. The application has a trial mode with a range of limitations, but its free features are still helpful.

That's what you can do in a trial mode of CleanMyMac X:

  • Remove up to 500 MB of junk* automatically, using the Run button;
  • Start Speed improvements up to 2 times.

    • Smart Scan
    • Cleanup:
      - System Junk
      - Mail Attachments
      - Trash Bins
    • Malware Removal
  2. Once the scan is complete, click Review Details.
  3. Click Remove Manually in the lower-right corner, then remove files on the list, one by one.
