BleachBit Reviews

The software Hilary Clinton allegedly used to delete those emails.

Open source app Bleachbit is works wonders for removing all kinds of residual files and other traces of activity on your Windows or Linux computer. It is therefore a privacy- and security-enhancing tool. Security researcher Bruce Schneier, who handled some of the leaked Snowden files, has used Bleachbit (amongst other things) to keep his computer clean and secure against NSA spying.

Bleachbit is also allegedly the app Hillary Clinton (or her staff) used to erase those infamous emails. Hillariously (pun partially intended), during one of the 2016 US presidential debates, Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of "bleaching" her emails, calling it "a very expensive process".

Rest assured that Trump made that up: Bleachbit is open source, free, and costs nothing to use. Oh, and also you don't have to pay for it.
(Except perhaps that its use might attract misleading statements from Donald Trump.)

Find things other programs don't

Bleachbit is able to go very deep and will delete a lot of things you wouldn't even know your computer keeps. I have never encountered any situation in which data has been deleted I didn't want it to. It does not break your registry or similar. It has also solved problems when not being able so install certain software.
A second feature besides just cleaning your system is that you are able to "shread with bleachbit" which will delete files and its digital footprint on your hard drive by changing its name and then deleting again. I recommend it to all my customers and friends.

It finds much more unnecesseary stuff than CCleaner when community repos are also enabled from options.
Using for years and never had an issue.
It is not an alternative to CCleaner but CCleaner is an alternative to BleachBit when it comes to cleaning job.

I don't think he did a thorough cleaning. The fact that it is open source software alone is not enough for itself.
