CCleaner Introduces New ‘Easy Clean’ Feature
CCleaner v5.57 includes an easy-to-use feature that helps users keep their computers clean, safe and fast

London, United Kingdom, 15 May 2019 – Piriform Software Ltd. announced today its new ‘Easy Clean’ feature in its flagship CCleaner product. Easy Clean provides users with the same powerful traditional clean, delivered through a new, easier-to-use screen and simplified set of controls that guides them through the cleaning process and helps them customize settings as desired.

In addition to having a simple, intuitive interface, the Easy Clean feature uses everyday language to ensure users understand what files are being cleaned, for example, describing Temporary Internet Files as ‘Files left behind when you visit websites’.

Easy Clean sits alongside CCleaner’s original cleaning screen, now renamed ‘Custom Clean’, and will be the default view for CCleaner when it is first opened. Users can choose to set either Easy Clean or Custom Clean as their home screen. No changes have been made to the familiar Custom Clean interface so loyal users can still tweak the interface and adapt their cleans as they require.

Paul Yung, VP Products commented, “CCleaner was originally developed as a solution for advanced PC users to maintain their PC. Over 2.5 billion downloads later, it now reaches a much wider audience and our research shows that many users would prefer a simpler, easy-to-use clean that takes care of the essentials. We want to make sure that every computer user, of any level of technical ability, has the choice, control and confidence in how they keep their machine clean, safe and fast with just a few clicks.”
