How to use Find & Fix tool in MacKeeper

The Find & Fix feature runs scans across all MacKeeper’s tools at once so you can fix any issues in one click. Find & Fix is divided into four categories:  

  • Security
  • Cleaning
  • Performance
  • Privacy

These are identical to the MacKeeper sidebar. Each category uses a specific group of MacKeeper features to scan for issues on a Mac, then fix them safely. You can use Find & Fix for an all-in-one Mac quick scan, or explore feature-by-feature for advanced functionality.

How Find & Fix works

The fastest way to check your Mac for issues is to run the Find & Fix feature. It quickly runs all its scans in one window, then assigns a MacKeeper status once the scan is over. Follow these steps to check your Mac:


1. Open MacKeeper, select Find & Fix at the top of the left sidebar and click the Start Full Scan button.

Find & Fix > Start Full Scan

2. Wait until MacKeeper is done scanning your Mac.

Note: If you click Stop Scan while the check is in progress, then MacKeeper will not save the scan results.


3. When the scan is over, you should see your results, MacKeeper status, and any messages in the right sidebar chat from your Personal Tech Expert.
