If you use a Mac or even spend some time on the apple community forums then you already know that there’s something called mackeeper out there that everyone seems to really hate. You might have even read some posts talking about how mackeeper is a virus that you should be very wary of. Unfortunatley, we do tend to believe things on the internet more if they’re something negative. We’re here to tell you the reality of things – that mackeeper is actually a pretty legit software that you ought to have.
So, is mackeeper a virus? Nope, not at all. It’s just a cleaning utility software that was advertised in the most annoyingly in your face fashion. The creator, Kromtech, is actually notorious for their really invasive online advertisements. Here are a few things that mackeeper actually does. It’s probably a good idea to get it as well. If you can forgive the advertisements that is.
It Clears Memory
Macs are designed to provide a very smooth and friendly user experience. This becomes a bit of a challenge for the processor if the RAM is full because of various background processes that you aren’t really using. Mackeeper can free some of this RAM for you be restricting background processes if you aren’t using the apps.
It Finds Duplicates
Half the junk in your PC is usually the stuff you’ve copied and pasted all over the place, meaning that you have a copy of each file. This only takes up space. These can be hard to find without the help of a cleaning utility such as Mackeeper.
It also has a very convenient and easy to use interface that allows you to uninstall applications that you don’t need and haven’t used in a long time. That’s another way of unburdening your Mac.
