Do I need to have a Mobile phone? The change in pass-word seems to have worked ,but the page changes I'm asked for a mobile phone .I don't have one, but the only way out is to log out.

It's a great product, but when your fee of £24 in year one becomes £168 at renewal - you have to conclude that they are con merchants who don't care about customer service in the slightest. Especially if you pay via PayPal (really don't use them either), because it automatically renews and charges you, to which you have no recourse. Avoid at all costs and use someone else who has a more transparent charging policy!

apparently its for the month. Its a one off charge as its automatic renewal & price will be different.

I've had loads of problems using and uninstalling MacKeeper couple of years ago and I was running fast as hell when anybody mentioned MacKeeper after that. It hurts just to write that name.. Thank you Jude, you really gave it a second chance. What I find disturbing is that MK is teaming up with other software companies in their search for the new market share, I've just got the newsletter from Skylum (Luminar app) where they list MacKeeper with a fantastic deal... I mean, a photo editing software affiliated with MK?! Where's the connection? OK if they offer deals with other photography businesses or educators and what not, but I guess they want to earn money, and MK is maybe giving them a great deal there. Oh well, they're both companies from Eastern Europe, even Clean My Mac is originating from there (me too btw) and they want to cooperate. I just don't feel good about Skylum investing the profit from affiliation with MacKeeper into developing Luminar (which I really like and support)...

As of today, Jan. 22/2020, this is what has happened: My original license was to expire May 2/2020. I buy a new license, today (to take advantage of a reduced price), with an expiry of 366 days (Jan. 22/2021). They have now combined the above 2 licenses and now they advise they will both expire April 30/2020, in 98 days????????? And on top of this, trying to activate the new license, was quite a rigamarole going through their support. I am waiting for a response, and if they do not correct the situation, I will cancel and request full refund.

This turned out to be a horrible product that I'm sorry I purchased. It wasn't on my MacBook very long and resuted in freezing my computer. I attempted to restart my computer over a three to four day period with no success. I then spent 4 to 5 hours with Apple Support having them look at the situation. MacKeeper used so much capacity it created this issue. This is an expensive lesson in getting sales pressure and being lied to about the program. DO NOT IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE ADD THIS TO YOUR COMPUTER!
