Mackeeper Alternative

MacKeeper alternative? In this article, we introduce a list of the top 4 best alternatives to MacKeeper 2016.

MacKeeper is a set of Macintosh system utilities to secure, prevent virus, clean-up and optimize to improve Mac OS X performance. However, this paid application costs too much money for subscription plan, and there are too many arguments about it either contains malware, spyware or destroys your mac.

I personally suppose that MacKeeper is safe to use, but we should not pay such that much money for many unnecessary purposes and even utilities which are existing in Mac OS X. What are the best MacKeeper alternatives?


CleanMyMac 3 must be the best alternative to MacKeeper 2016. It is designed by Macpaw to clean-up (junk, caches, plugins, widgets,…) the entire Mac, monitor its health, and optimize Mac OS X for better performance.

Piriform said that their product, CCleaner Pro, is number-one app to clean the Mac, protect your privacy, and makes your Mac faster and more secure. We all know that they has just released CCleaner for Mac recently, but CCleaner Pro (Windows version) gained Award-winning PC Optimization. It comes with quite nice and very organized interface and works supper fast. It is recommended to the one who strongly want to just free-up the Mac from junk, we-browsing data and system caches.

MacBooster 3 is likely similar to MacKeeper sine it either a maintenance tool to clean up junks, boost Mac performance, or removing Mac malware. I personally realize something familiar to CleanMyMac.
