BleachBit quickly frees disk space and tirelessly guards your privacy. Free cache, delete cookies, clear Internet history, shred temporary files, delete logs, and discard junk you didn't know was there. Designed for Linux and Windows systems, it wipes clean a thousand applications including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Adobe Flash, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari,and more. Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications, and vacuuming Firefox to make it faster. Better than free, BleachBit is open source.

Select the type of data you want to remove in BleachBit’s sidebar after launching it. Unlike CCleaner, BleachBit doesn’t automatically select or recommend certain types of data to delete. BleachBit works with system-wide data as well as application-specific data – for example, for web browsers such as Firefox.

BleachBit warns you if you select an option that’s slow or may have other problems.

You should run a preview by clicking the Preview button before running an actual Clean operation. Verify that Bleachbit isn’t deleting any important files you want to keep.

Note: Bleachbit can not clean the Pisi Linux Package Manager, and set not a hook or delete the localizations it can crash your Pisi Linux System.
