Ways to completely delete Avast Cleanup from Mac

If you no longer want to use Avast Cleanup, it’s important to remove it from your Mac. Leaving the app installed allows it to eat up system resources in the background, which could slow down your machine. The software will also use up storage space unnecessarily if you ignore it.

 

Fortunately, there are a number of easy ways to get rid of Avast Cleanup Premium on Mac, which we’ll look at here:

  1. Remove from the Applications folder
  2. Delete Avast Cleanup with a keyboard shortcut
  3. Uninstall from the Apple menu
  4. Remove with a third-party uninstaller

1. Remove from the Applications folder

One of the simplest ways to delete Avast Cleanup for Mac is to simply delete it from your Applications folder, like so:

  1. Open Finder on your Mac, then select Applications in the sidebar.
  2. Right-click on Avast Cleanup Premium, then click Move to Trash.
  3. Right-click on the Trash icon in your Mac’s dock, then select Empty Trash.
