Why can't I use CCleaner in my location?

We use geo-blocking controls to prohibit downloads in countries sanctioned by the US Government.

Why do we use geo-blocking at CCleaner? 

This is because we're a software developer that operates in the US, and we have to comply with US export controls and sanctions. If you live in a sanctioned country, we have to make sure you can't download or update our software in your location. 

What happens if you try to download CCleaner in a sanctioned country?

You see a message that says we don't support CCleaner in your current location. 

Does this impact me if I'm traveling in a sanctioned country?

Yes, it does. However, this changes once you get to a non-sanctioned country.
