So I get these questions quite a lot recently from friends or family. And I thought this could be a good question for Security Exchange, because I couldn't find this kind of question here.
I recieved questions like:
Should I install program 'x' promising me to clean files from my computer?
A few examples: 'Dr. Cleaner [mac], Cleanmaster [Android], CCleaner [Windows]'
I always advise against, because I feel like there are security risks involved. You give lots of privileges to applications that have no real benefit, since most of this is built into the OS anyway
Am I right in this assumption?
