When comparing CleanMyMac with MacKeeper, we can see that it lacks many features that are available with MacKeeper. It does not offer Human assistance, Geek on Demand, Find File, File Backup, and File Recovery Tools. CleanMyMac does not include any internet security features such as Anti-virus protection, Smart browsing, Data Encryption or Update tracker. In addition, the anti-theft technology and features like Track-my-Mac is only available in MacKeeper, and if you want such features with CleanMyMac, you have to purchase it from other vendors. However, when we consider the cost of these two software, the CleanMyMac offers us a price advantage. At $39.95/license (1 year subscription), it is much cheaper than MacKeeper.
