Why has CCleaner for Mac not been updated in the App store?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


There have been many users asking why CCleaner for Mac has not been updated in the App store.


This is due to Apple introducing a sandboxing requirement. As a result, for an application to be introduced (or updated) in the App store it needs to use a Sandbox, meaning that it can only have access to its own files and some user files/resources provided by OS X (more info here)


As CCleaner is about cleaning data from the system and other applications it no longer meets the App store requirement. Users wanting the latest version of CCleaner for Mac should download it directly from the Piriform website.
