Solved Is Piriform CCleaner still safe?

Do you think Ccleaner is still safe or no? I want to install it but have read many articles as of 2020 saying it isn’t.

Works fine for me.. I use the free version..

As with any downloads you install, use the manual/custom option not any default/proffered options watch for all prechecked boxes and uncheck all of them - apart from the one you want.

That ways you avoid unwanted installations and system changes from bundled additions.

If you use the slim or portable version, you don't have to worry about bundled software.

I noticed most of the sites that say CCleaner is unsafe are recommending their own product as an alternative. "CCleaner is bad, our product is good".

"CCleaner is bad, our product is good".

Noticed the same thing myself. Few of these products have quite the experience that CCleaner does, nor is there any guarantee of their safety as well.
