@Mike J H: apparently this issue is not unique to CCleaner.  Seems similar to the Windows 10 "S Mode" where users are locked to installing software from their app store.  Have you tried the solutions in this article here: https://www.minicreo.com/mac-uninstaller/app-cannot-be-opened-on-macos-catalina.html ?

I have a new iMac 21.5.  I downloaded CClearner for Mac but it will not open to clean.  I get the following message.  "CCleaner can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for Malicious software".  This doesn't sound right - how is it corrected?

This is an issue with MAC (Catalina?) itself and will also affect other software and not just CCleaner.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

I purchased CCleaner pro for mac and when I try to install the following message appears

“CCleaner.app” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software

Cleaner needs update" " Contact provider of app"

Any suggestions??
