CleanMyMac is a utility application developed by Macpaw for the macOS operating system, first released in 2009, which can automate or simplify removal of unnecessary files.[1]

The software can identify and delete unnecessary files on the macOS startup disk, including system files, log files, cache files, language files, universal binaries, old iOS software updates, and temporary Photos files.[2][3] The software offers the ability to bypass the trash when deleting files, and securely erase sensitive material.

An updated version, CleanMyMac2, was released on March 5, 2013, featuring a redesigned user-interface, an iPhoto library cleanup tool, a large and old file finder (for potential deletion), OS X Mavericks compatibility and performance improvements.[4] The newest iteration, CleanMyMac 3, version 3.9.0,[5] was released by MacPaw on May 8, 2015. The application requires OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or higher and about 45MB of free hard drive space. The software supports ten different languages.
