Avast Cleanup Premium is a device management tool made by Avast Software, based in the Czech Republic. Avast is most famous for its antivirus software, but it has many other product lines. The company has been in business for over three decades and is currently one of the most prominent software firms.

Avast Cleanup has a free trial version or paid “Premium” version, and the latter is where we’ll focus our review. We’ll judge it based on specific criteria, including pricing, features, compatibility, user interface, and customer support.

Avast Cleanup is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Android operating systems.

Plans and pricing

Avast Cleanup Premium costs $60 per year for a license covering just one device or $70 for ten devices. However, the company often runs heavy discounts bringing down the cost by half. Right now, you can get an annual license for one device for $30 and ten devices for $35. It’s the same price for Windows, Mac, or Android operating systems.

Compared to its competitors, Avast Cleanup is expensive. Avast is a premium brand in the software industry, so it can charge higher prices without scaring away customers.

The competition

Avast Cleanup Premium has many competitors, such as CCleaner and MacBooster. 

CCleaner has a pricing advantage over Avast Cleanup. It costs $30 per year, compared to Avast Cleanup’s $60 per year. You can, however, utilize Avast’s hefty discounts and get Cleanup Premium for the same price as CCleaner. Note that the discount may not apply when renewing your annual subscription. 

MacBooster starts at $30 per year, cheaper than Avast Cleanup. However, it’s only available for Mac OS compared to Avast Cleanup, which is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Android.

Final verdict

Avast Cleanup is a tool that lives up to its hype. It helps speed up and maintain your computer’s performance. However, the main drawback is that it’s relatively expensive. We’d make it cheaper if we had the choice.
