      JohnFastman 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.

      JohnDangerbrooks While still not a perfect alternative, it has many of CCleaner's features and none of its malicious behavior.

      elrey741 really awesome open source alternative, and also allows you to script the cleaning process through the CLI, which helps when you have to do it a lot.

      Barely similar. Their feature set is mutually exclusive. One can have both.

      JohnFastman Click&Clean is intended for clearing browsing information (e.g. cookies, LSOs) from your Chrome/Chromium/Opera/Vivaldi or Firefox browser. It is configurable, but doesn't delete temporary files from your computer like CCleaner does. You can use both and benefit in different ways.
