The Internet is full of quick fix-it apps that claim to either “clean-up” your computer, or that you need to remove unwanted or corrupted files that drag down the system speed. They may also claim they have the magical ability to “optimize” your PC or Mac.
Macube Cleaner is one of the applications designed for Mac computers. The app advertises itself as a solution for freeing up disk space by removing old junk files, rarely used applications, and other features. Although this marketing may seem legitimate, users should note that Macube Cleaner is classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) based on its questionable methods to gain access to users’ systems.
Many users have reported the sudden emergence of Macube Cleaner despite not remembering installing it. This is a common trait among PUPs. Their presence goes unnoticed bundled with third-party software updaters and installers. During the installation of a freeware program, it is especially common for PUPs to come as an additional preselected app choice in the setup wizard steps. As a result, a PUP can come bundled with a freeware program.
If, after a system scan, Macube Cleaner presents Mac users with items for removal or other optimization suggestions, they can only proceed with the removal of detected items and other suggested actions by purchasing the full version of Macube Cleaner.
How Do I Remove Macube Cleaner from My Mac?
Using a reputable malware remediation tool, you can scan for and remove Macube Cleaner and its associated files from your computer. And when installing freeware or other software from unknown sites, always select the advanced or custom installation option to ensure that you only install the programs you need.
