How to remove 'Mac Tuneup Pro' from Mac?

What is 'Mac Tuneup Pro'?

Mac Tuneup Pro (also known as Mac-TuneupPro, Mac Tuneup, or Mac-Tuneup-Pro) is presented as a legitimate application that supposedly allows users to optimize their Mac computers and enhance performance. Judging on appearance alone, Mac Tuneup Pro may seem legitimate and useful, however, developers promote this app using a deceptive marketing method called 'bundling'. Thus, it is likely to infiltrate computers without direct user permission. It is also promoted using deceptive messages that display fake errors and encourage users to download tools that will fix them. Therefore, Mac Tuneup Pro is categorized as a potentially unwanted application (PUA).

Mac Tuneup Pro allows users to scan the system to find existing errors. In fact, Mac Tuneup Pro does this automatically on the first run. Note that the free version of Mac Tuneup Pro is not capable of fixing any errors. Therefore, victims are encouraged to purchase the 'full version' (pay for Mac Tuneup Pro activation). Note, however, that many fake system optimization tools are promoted using the 'bundling' method. These apps display fake scan results simply to trick users into purchasing so-called 'full versions' that deliver no real value. Once purchased, these apps merely clean the fake list and nothing more. They do not enhance system performance in any way. Mac Tuneup Pro is also distributed the 'bundling' method, and it is currently unknown whether this app can be trusted. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you uninstall this app and do not pay for the full version. In addition, 'bundling' is often used to proliferate several unwanted applications at once. Therefore, Mac Tuneup Pro may not be the only PUA that has infiltrated your computer. In most cases, criminals use this method to proliferate adware and browser hijackers. These apps deliver advertisements, cause redirects, and gather various information. As well as uninstalling Mac Tuneup Pro, you should remove other dubious applications/browser plug-ins as well.

There are many applications that are identical to Mac Tuneup Pro. For example, My Mac Speedup, Cleanup My Mac, Advanced Mac Booster, etc. In fact, potentially unwanted applications are all very similar. By offering 'useful features', these apps attempt to give the impression of legitimacy and trick users to install. They often succeed. In fact, few PUAs provide the functions promised. Most are designed only to generate revenue for the developers. Rather than giving any real value for regular users, PUAs cause unwanted redirects, gather information, deliver advertisements, and promote in-app purchases.

How did Mac Tuneup Pro install on my computer?

Mac Tuneup Pro is free for anyone to download on its official website, however, as mentioned above, Mac Tuneup Pro is also distributed using the 'bundling' method. Therefore, it is likely to infiltrate computers without users’ permission. Developers hide 'bundled' apps within 'Custom/Advanced' settings (or other sections) of the download/installation processes. These people are not honest enough to adequately disclose installation of these programs. Furthermore, many users rush these processes and skip steps - behavior that often leads to inadvertent installation of third party apps. Users expose their systems to risk of various infections and compromise their privacy. As mentioned above, Mac Tuneup Pro is also distributed using rogue websites. These sites display pop-up windows stating that users' computers are damaged/infected and must be fixed immediately. Users are encouraged to immediately download software that will supposedly resolve all problems (in this case, Mac Tuneup Pro).

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

To prevent this situation, be very cautious during the download/installation processes, and when browsing the internet. Carefully analyze each step of the download/installation processes using 'Custom/Advanced' settings. Opt-out of additionally-included programs and do not accept offers to download/install them. We strongly advise you to download software from official sources only, using direct download links. Third party downloaders/installers often include rogue apps, and thus these tools should never be used. Unwanted apps are also distributed using intrusive advertisements, most of which seem legitimate, however, they often redirect to dubious sites (e.g., gambling, pornography, survey, etc.) These ads are often delivered by adware-type apps. If you encounter these ads or redirects, immediately remove all suspicious applications/browser plug-ins. If your computer is already infected with PUAs, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for macOS to automatically eliminate them.
