    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.

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

    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.

    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!

    The Android version of Clean Master was removed by Google in 2020 from the Play Store including all Cheetah Mobile's apps "for violating our disruptive ads policy and disallowed interstitial policy."

    Clean Master has been very useful on Android until Google decided to remove it from the Play Store. I still recommend Clean Master, for it has a nice interface, simple installation, clean design and trusted functionality.

    It is deduplicator, not cleaner. Alternative to FSlint. Not to CCleaner or BleachBit

    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.
