    Before taking "advantage" of this deal - perhaps best to do a quick MR search of Clean My Mac.

    I might be tempted by the lifetime VPN subscription @$599, but then I saw in the graphic that it's actually $499. Does MR get the difference? :-(

    MRbot humor ...

    I've been using Chronicle Pro for 2 years, I highly recommend it. Helps me manage all my bills and their due dates. Best finance app in the Mac App Store for sure.

    I can highly recommend CrossOver, that's a great application.

    CleanMyMac... oh dear, not this again. I guess the MR servers don't pay for themselves. To anybody wanting to get this application, please may I suggest the free alternatives below from reputable companies who don't post fake reviews everywhere.

    OmniDiskSweeper to identify what's taking up space on your Mac: https://www.omnigroup.com/more

    AppCleaner to uninstall applications and their associated plist files: https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/

    MalwareBytes for malware detection that actually works: https://www.malwarebytes.com/mac-download/

    And if you want a "memory cleaner", turn your Mac off and on again to clear the RAM. Either that or don't obsess about memory usage. Free RAM is wasted RAM and high RAM usage is not a bad thing unless it's paging heavily to disk as a result. I'd much rather MacRumors promoted an article on what maintenance is actually necessary for your Mac and how macOS's memory management works, but hey. That's one less click to StackSocial.

    This...so much this.

    CleanmyMac, shakes head, don't get it MR doesn't distance themselves from this crapware.

    A mac (OS X/macOS) does not need maintenance, haven't done this in what, almost 2 decades.

    Lifetime VPN for this amount, yeah right, next year they're gone.

    Folx pro, increase your download speed, again, yeah right...and this torrent app is actually mentioned on MR...WHAT.

    There's a few good ones though like crossover.

    Not to worry, some of the software they're promoting might be dubious but at least StackSocial are a well rated com–

    CleanMyMac X is not worth much. Everything it does you can find for free with Onyx, MalwareBytes, and AppCleaner. You're basically paying for the cute GUI.

    I got my parents to try it and it works really well. They somehow ALWAYS manage to slow their Macs down. I had them do the free trial and their Macs were as good as new. After that they got licenses for it and have never called me about their computers (2012 iMac and a 2014'ish MacBook Pro) being slow again. Free alternatives or not, this definitely does work.

    Cleanmymac is pretty useful, but man now its a rental? I would have jumped on this bundle if cleanmymac was not a '1 year license'. I can't imagine why this tool requires annual licensing.

    VPNSecure hasn’t been updated in over a year. Big red flag.

    I looked up this VPN company and they seem legit. Seems like they frequently run the lifetime deal and a lot of people have taken advantage of it in years past. The VPN and Folx are the only apps I would actually use. My download manager now is iGetter but it will be unusable under Catalina as it is 32 bit. Are there better download managers than Folx out there?

    A VPN company giving you 'lifetime' access for what is probably 50 cents out of this bundle is a crock. It's likely ad supported and collects your site visits to sell to advertisers. Maybe you have the security of a vpn but none of the privacy.

    Why is it MacRumors includes malware in their bundle, CleanMyMac is total crap and should never be installed on ANY Mac.

    Clean my mac does work. Apart from Crossover, I have most of these apps through a Setapp subscription.

    It's crap, why don't people just listen and get it off their Macs is beyond my understanding.
    Macs do NOT need maintenance.
    Been using OS X/macOS since the beginning (10.0b), some people also think a reinstall does magic but then import all their files with settings, in the end you end up exactly the same as before.

    Fact, CMM is malware.

    You guys are mistaking CMM from MacKeeper. MacKeeper is malware. CleanMyMac, from my experience letting old people use it, is ‘safe’ but useless

    (Almost Harmful because it can delete certain System Files and cache if you’re not paying attention to what they present to you as ‘junk’)

    If you just trash all the third-party utilities that Clean and Purge and Monitor and Maintain: you'll have done more useful work than they ever did.

    Unfortunately, as you probably know, it’s quite difficult to actually remove. You have to dig very deep in the file system to actually find everything to delete. I’ve had my battle with CleanMyMac on a friend’s computer. I don’t think AppCleaner could find everything.
