Where do I enter my license key? (CCleaner for Mac):

You can register your license into CCleaner for Mac using the following steps:

  2. Enter code and click Activate

Activate your subscription screen

If you’ve already registered your license in the CCleaner app but need to activate a new replacement license key, please follow the same method above.

In general, registration problems happen because of a small typing error when entering the key. It’s usually easier to use copy and paste (Cmd⌘-C, and Cmd⌘-V on a Mac) to enter the details from your purchase confirmation email to help avoid typing errors.

If you do type your information by hand, it’s worth noting:

  • Our keys don't contain the letter i, the number 1 (one), the letter o, or the number 0 (zero)

You may also have problems registering if:

  • Your CCleaner license has expired

Suppose that you lose your CCleaner for Mac registration information (for the new version) or need to check the status of your licenses, expiry dates, or get new download links to install our app on other computers.
