MacKeeper is a professional-grade software application designed to speed up the existing performance of the Mac operating system. Providing both online and offline features, the advanced utilities and tools here represent excellent amenities for users who may be struggling with ongoing performance issues.
Optimized with flexible and user-friendly features
MacKeeper is primarily intended to identify and rectify any programs that might be adversely impacting the performance of an operating system. Another interesting feature is that this program can alert users to applications that are never used or otherwise needlessly obtrusive.
The same holds true for extensions, widgets, and browser plugins. A recent update allows users to delete memory-laden email attachments—ideal for business purposes.
Furthermore, MacKeeper includes an anti-virus bundle as a standard feature. Encryption issues and similar threats are therefore less of an ongoing concern.
Finally, with MacKeeper you can easily and permanently delete unwanted files. Known as the "Shredder," this tool is helpful when a specific piece of data is no longer required. Please note that there is no possibility to recover a file that has been deleted this way.
A streamlined and intuitive user interface
Developed by Kromtech Alliance, the utilities and tools found within MacKeeper have been configured for users with little experience using Mac utilities. A menu found on the left-hand side of the dashboard provides quick access to all major functions, and its particularly clean layout offers step-by-step guides when addressing performance issues. From this centralized portal, users can run safe cleanups, find duplicate folders, uninstall specific programs, monitor Internet security issues, and much more. Whenever users want to run MacKeeper, they can find the handy icon on the primary toolbar.
One-click options to free up valuable RAM
Many software bundles which claim to speed up existing operating systems actually slow it down as a result of clumsy architecture. In contrast, the memory footprint associated with MacKeeper is quite small. Consequently, users should not be plagued by sluggish performance when this program is running.
Notwithstanding the performance-boosting features this app runs, there are a number of security and privacy concerns that can be addressed using MacKeeper, including a secure VPN, online threat management, and a handy tracking feature which can be used in the event that the computer itself is stolen.
While no free version is available, there are four different pricing plans to choose from. Plans can be purchased for a single month, six months, 12 months, or 24 months. Longer prepaid plans are associated with lower monthly rates.
