    so I decided to download app cleaner for my Sierra for when I clean up my MacBook Pro.
    then will download version for Mojave when I upgrade.

    I am always leery in downloading apps that are not in App Store or suggested in this forum.
    I check top search bar and if there is no 'unsecured' notification...assume that site is valid for software download.

    freemacsoft site is secure....so I assume the app cleaner here is ok.
    and probably lots of other apps too.
    can you confirm?

    Can't speak to the software, but having a lock on the site does not mean it is safe. Just that it uses https instead of http security for the connection. That said, it would appear that freemacsoft may be the developer's website. If so, the software should be safe.

    Yes, I use AppCleaner from freemacsoft.net. I've been using it for about 6 years.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    I prefer to download from the developers actual site and doing so, also one can get the latest and fully complete version. Some prefer using the App Store, but the latest version may be delayed from being released there, and too often, Apple has removed or deleted some features.

    Also, the developer doesn't get the full amount that their software is usually sold for.

    So in this case you could get a safe download for DetectX here:
    DetectX – sqwarq | security for your mac

    Personably, I prefer and occasionally use Malwarebytes for Mac that one can use manually in a free mode and there's no difference to the automatic run version that they charge $60.00 for 1 year suscription.

    The free trial works just as well, as far as I know, and they have it sort of hidden on their webpage under the text "button":
    "DOWNLOAD14 DAY TRIAL"
    Malwarebytes Premium | Malware Protection

    Both are secure sites to download from.

    What? Where is your proof of this? Have you actually published apps to the App Store?

    The App Store makes it COMPLETELY clear that you get 70% of the published price for your application and Apple gets 30%.

    That is not a bad price for any developer to pay to get the entire distribution infrastructure without having to create it themselves. Plus, they get analytics and a nice way of deploying in phases and so on.
