Here this is the app Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro.app.zip


Both are considered clean by VirusTotal excluded from AVAST and AVG that consider them MacOS: TuneUpMyMac-T [PUP] but are blocked by the APPBLOCK function of Malwarebytes for macOS 3.7.34. Until version 3.6 they were not even considered and were allowed to run regularly. I would like to know from @treed or from other staff members what this behavior is due to.
Thank you

Those are both apps made by a prolific developer of unwanted software, such as several different junk "cleaning" apps. At the moment, we have a blanket block on certain developers via App Block, and this is one of them.

In reality it is not completely free and produced by the same developer I had an uninstaller that was deleted from the Mac AppStore and offered me a free license on the other hand outside the Mac AppStore (obviously after the advice of @treed I do not use it anymore) therefore I preferred to opt for another choice.

Instead I downloaded from the Apple store Duplicate Files Sweeper by Wise Tech Labs Private Limited which is free and not blocked, for the time being, by Malwarebytes.

I have been using these 2 programs for some time and they're really helpful to me! I just installed Malwarebytes and am not sure why it classified them?!  I got a shock! Glad to know its just a blanket block and not something more sinister.
