    Any good? Seems to have a language cleaner to get rid of unused languages among other new features. However it seems expensive to upgrade at $60.

    NO...and you ought to know that being a member since 2010! People here advise the use of Malwarebytes to get rid of it.

    Go for it! MacKeeper is getting better with each version. And now it's at version 3!? That must mean something.

    Are you starting another troll thread about MacKeeper? You already did a thread to discuss MacKeeper.
    http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/mackeeper.1961649/

    You already had your mind made up about MacKeeper and just wanted to disagree with everybody's advice. Are you just looking to stir the pot just because MacKeeper has an update?

    No to see if anyone has used this new version and if the software has improved.

    No one needs or should intentionally install MacKeeper software of any kind. If you have, please request a refund.

    MacKeeper offers nothing other than backdoor access for someone else.

    If you need tracking for a personal mac try something like PreyProject
    https://preyproject.com/

    Lastly, if it helps you sleep at night: $60 is a lot cheaper than a new mattress, go ahead and get it. But we have warned you... many times apparently.

    The way MacKeeper is advertised cracks me up every time. I absolutely love how they highlight the logos of reputable news agencies on their website, making them appear as endorsements, while on the one hand some of the articles they link to explicitly point out that MacKeeper had a massive security breach a couple of years ago, and on the other hand some websites are merely community-based postings on these websites or are written by the company itself (e.g. IBTimes). They are not even ashamed about their poor advertising tactics, they know that most people won’t pay attention. They could make up their own certification mark to it and people would still buy it.

    Only paid, gullible or oblivious people recommend MacKeeper.

    I wouldn't use this crap even if they would be paying me. This is one of the most annoying programs for macOS, always annoying an aggressive way of making them selfs noticed. No, hell no!

    I would not say ripped off. Getting fat because you buy and eat ice cream is not getting ripped off, it's the consequence of an action.

    Do you need ice cream? No, of course not.
    Do you need MacKeeper? No, of course not.

    Can ice cream hurt you? It may.
    Can MacKeeper hurt you? It may.

    Millions believe in Santa Claus.

    Aka hell ****ing no. Mackeeper is the malware of the worst kind - The one that pretends to do really good things, but really does the opposite. Like, Santa Claus with drugs.
