    Is it safe to download and use MACKEEPER? Is it worth it?

    NO, NO, and again NO!

    This malicious app was the cause of a class action against the developers because of the harm done to computers.

    Not only is it a danger to your Mac, it is very difficult to uninstall completely.

    If you need third party help with your Mac; OnyX for sorting things out and Malwarebytes app for finding & removing malware are all you need.

    I've never tried it because of its bad rep.

    I wouldn't put it on my Mac with all the bad reviews this software has.
