Frequently Asked Questions

What are Remains?

Remains are files that are left on the hard drive even though the applications that used them are no longer in the system (this occurs when apps are removed into Trash Bin by dragging).

Is App Cleaner & Uninstaller safe?

App Cleaner & Uninstaller is signed by Apple Developer Certificate. All Nektony apps are notarized by Apple. This means that the apps comply with the security requirements of Apple.

Why do I need a special app for uninstallation?

MacOS apps can be removed simply by dragging to Trash Bin. Nevertheless, some service and temporary files from the deleted apps may still remain. Little by little these files can take up a huge amount of hard drive space.

Can I uninstall system apps by App Cleaner?

Apple doesn’t allow you to delete its default apps. Removal of such apps may damage the system. Nektony follows Apple recommendations, that’s why App Cleaner DOES NOT uninstall system apps as well.
