MacKeeper’s Birthday Sumup

13 years ago, in April 2010, MacKeeper was launched—kicking off a new era in cybersecurity. What started as an anti-theft tool evolved into an all-in-one toolkit for MacBook users. In the years since, we’ve reached multiple milestones and attained notable certifications in the industry.


Our main achievements include…

  • ISO 27001 certification audit. It means that MacKeeper is in line with the latest information security best practices
  • AV-TEST certification. MacKeeper’s tools have been put through rigorous tests and found to comply with the highest security standards. In other words, when you use MacKeeper, you can be sure you’ve got the real deal
  • AppEsteem certification. MacKeeper has met all the compliance requirements set by AppEsteem, which certifies security apps and similar services. Given that the AppEsteem certification protects the users of security apps, you can rest assured that your computer is in safe hands
  • Notarized by Apple. This is a guarantee from Apple that the MacKeeper app is safe to install and doesn't contain any malware.

Protecting your personal information has never been more important. That’s why MacKeeper’s Antivirus tool went viral as a reliable solution that ensures your Mac doesn’t house any malicious threats. It even scans the hard drives you connect to your computer to ensure they don’t corrupt it. If you care about protecting your data, don’t waste time—get MacKeeper’s Antivirus tool today.
