Do you know what Advanced Mac Cleaner is?
In this article, we are going to discuss an application called Advanced Mac Cleaner which is an alleged system optimization tool for Mac OS. It has come to our attention that many users find this program useless. Our cyber security experts analyzed it and found that its scans contain many false positives and are insufficient overall. Therefore, they have classified it as a potentially unwanted program and recommend that you remove it from your PC as soon as possible.
Researchers have classified Advanced Mac Cleaner as a potentially unwanted program due to the fact that its scans are not thorough. It leaves many of the files that should be deleted as they are and some users have reported that its scans result in many false positives. However, this program’s developers claim that it can uninstall unwanted software, manage and delete file duplicates, clean hard drives off junk files, and so on. However, this application is only partly functional because its developers want you to purchase its license key for 64.47 USD. If you buy it, then, at the checkout page, you will be offered to buy Sticky Password for an additional 10.30 USD. It must be said that this program is all about making money, so forget about it delivering you a reliable and useful service because it will not. This program’s developers prey on unwary users who believe that their computer is under threat and jump right in and pay up the 64.47 USD.
Our cyber security experts have found that Advanced Mac Cleaner was created by a company known as PCVARK. This company develops applications for Mac OS, and Windows and the information we found suggests that some of its other programs can be classified as potentially unwanted as well. This company is based in India but has an English website at Pcvark.com. This website promotes all of its releases that include Universal Driver Updater, Photo Master, Ad-Blocker, Speedy Mac, Memory Optimizer Pro, and many others. Nevertheless, most of this company’s products have their own dedicated websites.
Advanced Mac Cleaner, in particular, is featured on a website at Advancedmaccleaner.com which features its standalone installer. The site claims that this program was coded by industry experts that have combined experience of 32 years. This site is all about presentation, and its job is to convince you that this particular application is reliable, safe, and useful. While Advanced Mac Cleaner is definitely not a malicious application, it is next to useless. Therefore, we recommend that you uninstall it from your computer as soon as possible.
In conclusion, Advanced Mac Cleaner is a potentially unwanted application. It is not malicious per se, but it is more of a scam program. Users claim that it does not do anything useful and our malware researchers are of the same opinion. Still, its developers want you to pay a whopping 64.47 USD for it. We recommend that you refrain from doing that and suggest that you remove it from your PC as soon as possible.

In non-techie terms:
Advanced Mac Cleaner is a Mac optimization application that our malware analysts have classified as a potentially unwanted program because its scan results show false positives and does not detect all of the issues. Its poor scan results coupled with the fact that it is a paid application shows that it might have been created to trick unwary users into buying a useless application. Many users have said that Advanced Mac Cleaner is unreliable and we agree. Therefore, you should consider removing this program.
