It's not Black Friday, but the app that speeds up Macs is 60% off

Washing Machine is . That is 60% reduction compared to the base price of 49.99 euros, at the moment and without anyone knowing until when the promotion is available. However, this comes after the end of the year holidays have passed, so we do not promise it a great future. As a reminder, Washing Machine allows those who wish to improve the performance of their Mac in the blink of an eye. Simply launch the software to get a better computer startup speed, to begin with. But that's not all.

Indeed, as the developer explains, Intego Washing Machine X9 can also make apps launch faster too. To achieve this, the program is responsible in particular for detecting unwanted files present on your storage memory. This could be, for example, duplicates, but also languages ​​of the operating system that you do not master. Because, yes, when you buy the Mac, it comes with the configuration of the language of your choice but also with all the others, such as Mandarin or Italian. However, you clearly don't need it if you don't know how to speak these dialects! And making space on the hard drive increases the overall performance of your computer.

Premium Mac Pack: an even better alternative

At Intego, at the moment, we also find instead of 84.99 euros per year. This suite includes not only the Washing Machine software, but also other programs from the same publisher, this time mainly dedicated to cybersecurity. These are, on the one hand, the VirusBarrier X9 antivirus, and on the other hand the NetBarrier X9 firewall. With these, you will also be able to benefit from the Personal Backup 10.9 intelligent backup solution. The latter is complementary to Time Machine, offering features that Apple's software does not have.

The Premium Mac Pack is also an opportunity to take advantage of parental control thanks to the tool called ContentBarrier X9. The latter suggests defining time slots, outside of which your children will not be able to connect to the internet. It's also with ContentBarrier X9 that you can choose to fill a “blacklist” of sites, corresponding to the pages that you wish to keep out of reach of young people. Violent content is legion on the web, so this is a good way to protect budding Internet users.

Some opinions on Intego

We ourselves took the time to test Intego, accessible if you choose the Premium Mac Pack offer. During our use of this antivirus, we noted in particular its ability to recognize viruses “each time we visited infected sites“. We can also cite the opinion published by our colleagues at Journal du Geek, who believe that this software is “simple to install&amp ;#8221; and “affordable for most budgets“.

The second sentence here probably refers to the different Intego prices. Indeed, if you do not want or cannot spend 29.99 euros for the first year, be aware that Intego also offers an offer of 19.99 euros for the first year. However, this does not offer Washing Machine software or ContentBarrier X9. But you will indeed be entitled to the VirusBarrier X9 antivirus and the NetBarrier X9 firewall.
