I keep getting a popup on my Mac that says "FatlineSparkle wants to make changes." And it prompts me for my password. I have no idea what FatlineSparkle is. I keep canceling. Anybody have ideas what this is? MacOS Sierra 10.12.4

A lot of the adware threats on Macs can be gotten rid of by cleaning out the caches/ temporary files....especially the browsers.


You likely picked up something bundled with an app or browser extension that wasn't sponsored at the Apple Store.


First try using CCleaner for Mac. If that doesn't solve the problem then do a clean UNinstall of the browser.

CCleaner for Mac - Piriform
