Why have I been updated to CCleaner v5.74?

Over the coming weeks, we are carrying out an Important Update to move users onto CCleaner v5.74, which will update to the latest version as soon as it is available. This replaces the old method where users had to update CCleaner via our website. We are carrying out this change for two reasons:

  1. Since CCleaner was first released many years ago, our tech landscape has changed considerably. CCleaner is developed to clean to a safe maximum but the files, folders and browsers (built by Windows, Mozilla, Google etc.) that are cleaned are always changing. CCleaner has to stay on top of what can and can’t be cleaned so it can give your PC the deepest - and safest - clean. Therefore, we decided it was best for our users to make sure they are always running the latest and safest version of CCleaner available. 
  2. Having listened to our users’ feedback, we learned that manually updating CCleaner via our website was a pain point for a growing number of our users and was preventing them from updating. For these reasons, we decided to give everyone the opportunity to move onto a version of CCleaner that updates automatically in the background. Easier updates also mean that users can try new features right away!

Before this Important Update took place, we delivered notifications in the CCleaner app to make users aware this update would happen, with instructions on how to adjust their update settings to opt out. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our team at support@ccleaner.com.
