How to remove Mac Purifier

What is Mac Purifier?

Mac Purifier is a rogue application designed to trick users into paying for nothing. Mac Purifier operates in quite the same way as other similar PUPs like Mac Tonic, Advanced Mac Tuneup, Safe Cleaner for Mac and Smart Mac Care. At first, it detects any bugs in your system supposedly affecting its performance, and then demands money to fix them. Actually, it’s just a scam and probably there is nothing wrong with your computer. Developers just earn money that way, so don’t buy the full version. Among other things, it generates a lot of annoying overlay advertisements and causes redirects to sponsored pages. Given all this, you are advised to remove Mac Purifier if you have it installed asap.
