kicking out badware since 2014
What people say:
“As an author of a Mac eBook for newbies, I have a chapter where I recommend DetectX…Thanks for the great little app. Glad to support it!” View…
“Awesome little app, lightweight and does the job well. The best part is that it doesn’t install persistent, constantly running file scanners like other AV apps. Definitely recommended for someone who installs a lot of apps outside the App Store.” View…
“super poweful tool, works super fast” View…
“Remove MacKeeper – The easy way!” View…

What is it?
Let’s start with what it isn’t: it’s not an AV Scanner that wastes your system resources scanning harmless files. It’s not a ‘clean up’ app that pretends to speed up or improve your mac’s performance, and it’s not an uninstaller or app remover for other apps that leave around file litter.
It is, rather, a lightweight, on-demand dedicated search and troubleshooting tool, probably the fastest of its kind, that can identify malware, adware, keyloggers, potentially unwanted apps and potentially destabilising apps on a mac. It can also help you (or us, if you consult us), to identify unknown and novel threats through its Profiler and History functions.
What does it cost?
For home use? Nothing if you prefer! DetectX and DetectX Swift are shareware, which means you can go on using them without sharing a cent!
That said, we can only continue development if enough people do share, so there is an optional $10 Home registration key for each product available through the app interface (note that these are not transferable from DetectX to DetectX Swift or vice versa).
If you would like to upgrade from a DetectX Commercial license to a DetectX Swift Management license, please contact Sqwarq support.
There are no authorized resellers of any Sqwarq Home registration products, including DetectX and DetectX Swift.
