Question

What is MacKeeper and how can I remove it?


Answer

MacKeeper  is a malicious form of software which targets Mac OS X. It Should Not Be Downloaded and installed because it will cause your computer to Run Slowly and eventually Crash. It advertises itself by offering security and optimization services. However, once installed it will destabilize the system, prompt pop-ups and will attempt to scam the user.


 

If MacKeeper  has been installed:
 

  1. Ignore any requests that it makes.
     
  2. Perform a computer scan using MalwareBytes . Instructions to do so can be found Here. This should remove MacKeeper .
     
  3. If this is unsuccessful or you are unable to perform a scan, please take your laptop to 1Degree.
