MacUpdate is a Mac software download website founded in 1996.[1]


In the Inc. 5000 list of private American companies with the fastest revenue growth, MacUpdate was listed 319th in 2008, 114th in 2009, and 233rd in 2010.[1]

MacUpdate has offered several "bundles" offering Mac software at a discounted price.[2][3][4]

The company offered an application called MacUpdate Desktop ($20/year with a 10 day trial) which automatically downloaded and installed updates to other installed applications on a user's Mac.[5] MacUpdate Desktop has since been discontinued.[6]

In 2020, MacUpdate was acquired by Clario Tech ltd., a London-Kyiv based cybersecurity company.[7]
