Contact Clearout will remove your Mac duplicate contacts as well as fixing a pile of other problems in your contact list, such as repeating fields. But it goes further…

A single click will remove all the duplicates, another click will remove the partial duplicates. But Clearout goes further and will search out possible matches. You can combine or update these matches and then delete the duplicate in a complete and seamless workflow.

Mistakes can always happen, so all contacts deleted in Clearout are archived. You can easily recover them by dragging them in the Finder.

Any field or group of fields – phone numbers, addresses, social profiles – can be moved between cards. Spot a mistake? – fields can be edited with a double click.

Graphical display of group membership makes it easy to organize groups and allows you to visually analyse how you are using groups.

Contact Clearout has been designed so you have the option to examine the duplicates before you remove them.  This allows you to be sure of which contacts are being deleted but more importantly helps in tracking down the source of recurring problems.

Your contact information is important to you. Clearout lets you keep complete control over which data is discarded.

Legacy operating systems. This App is made for Yosemite. For legacy system support, Address Book Clearout provides similar functionality. Contact Clearout works with the El Capitan.
