CCleaner Alternatives

One of the most well known hard drive cleaning utilities out there, CCleaner has earned its reputation from being free and easy to operate, with clear indications of what's being deleted and how much free space your hard drive is set to gain from the process.

A highly recommended Windows and Linux alternative to CCleaner by our community can be found in Small BleachBit iconBleachBit, which is also open source and purported to be more thorough. Of course, there are many other alternatives for Windows, Linux, and macOS, as well as available on the App Store and Google Play Store.

    BleachBit is open source and does a thorough job of deleting various files that could reveal what you've been up to, from cookies to temporary files and other junk. It can't replace CCleaner on Mac, but on Windows and Linux it is arguably better and more trustworthy.

    Glary Utilities, to my knowledge, has not been hacked and packed with malware.

    It's not just a good alternative to CCleaner, it's even better than this. I can not confirm the Bundleware, at least not since a long time ago, even File Puma, Glary's own page is a highly recommended site to find and download software of all kinds.

    I have never heard of this before so I checked it out this program is super extensive. it does have a donors version but it has everything unlocked not sure what the donor version does. But it does not beg you to pay like CCleaner. It has many option's for cleaning you will enjoy if you are a nerd or just basic home use. I will be ditching CCleaner for this and Fully recommend this to all my friends from now on!

    Not a good alternative, seems like a bait and switch company. Got a really bad feeling with their free trial and deleted immediately.

    Onyx is basically a GUI tool for all the housekeeping tools that macOS has on the command line. It will allow you to reset/clean up and clear most of the caches and tools that are in macOS, but have no dedicated GUI. In so far it is a "safe" choice, because it doesn't do anything that isn't provided for by the OS itself, it just offers a GUI and all the tools in one place. And for free. What's not to love?

    To compare Onyx with CCleaner is like comparing an apple to a CPU. They are incomparable.
