Clean Me is a tool created to help Mac users analyze their system and perform a clean-up when needed. After the inspection process by this tool, large log files, trash and unnecessary downloaded files can be deleted to free up the system space. A large log file mostly indicates that a program (or your system) has some problems that need to be resolved.

The Clean Me tool uses the pod ‘STPrivilegedTask‘ to handle sensitive data like getting your root password. The tool is design not to save this sensitive information such as password, neither does it load any sensitive data in a variable. Additionally. Clean Me does not request an internet connection, keeping you more safe.
