The complaints about MacKeeper are all over the shop: It’s a virus. It holds your machine hostage until you pay up. It can’t be completely removed if you decide to delete it. Instead of speeding up your computer, it slows it down. It erases your hard drive, deletes photos, and disappears documents. There are protests about MacKeeper’s annual subscription fees. Zeobit is slammed for seedy marketing tactics. It runs pop-under ads, plants sock-puppet reviews and encourages sleazy affiliate sites.

MacKeeper is a utility software suite for Mac OS designed to optimize and cleanup a computer system. It was developed by ZeoBit and in 2013 sold to Kromtech Alliance a technology investment group. Due to controversy regarding the marketing tactics used in the advertising of MacKeeper the product has received much negative online attention.

On 2 May 2011, the rogue security program MacDefender (also known as Mac Protector, Mac Security, Mac Guard, and Mac Shield) was released. The similarity in name created confusion amongst Mac users, although no affiliation exists between the two.Zeobit has been accused of employing misleading advertising with regards to its promotion of MacKeeper, including aggressive affiliates, pop-under ads and plants sock-puppet reviews as well as websites set up to discredit their competitors
