      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.

      BleachBit only cleans the profile of the person logged in. It does not clean multiple users.

      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.

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

      Onyx vs CCleaner
      pros, cons and recent comments
      wonderwarthog 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?
      Positive comment about 2 years ago

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

      It's not for the system, but for the browser...
      Negative comment about 2 years ago

      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.
