CleanMyMac X now detects apps that may endanger the privacy of your data

Since Russia began the war in Ukraine, the cyberattacks have increased dramatically. MacPaw has announced that, to help users effectively protect their data, the CleanMyMac team has added a new category of apps to the Uninstaller module — Suspicious.

How does it work?

If any of the applications installed on your Mac are developed by or hosted in Russia or Belarus, CleanMyMac X marks them as suspicious.

To see whether you have any on your computer, follow this instruction:

  • Launch CleanMyMac X
  • Go to Uninstaller
  • Select the Suspicious category in the side menu
  • Review the apps in the category and select those you want to uninstall.
