An auto clicker is a program that changes how your computer interprets your mouse clicks. It can allow you to click on buttons multiple times with a single click or perform pre-programmed clicks on your behalf. By adjusting settings and even creating macros in the program, you can use an auto clicker with click-based video games and complete click-heavy repetitive tasks.
We’ve assembled a list of our favorite auto clickers for Mac below. Read through to find the best auto clicker for your clicking needs!
1. Auto Clicker for Mac
Auto Clicker for Mac was developed by MurGaa, a company that’s actually made several Mac auto clickers over the years, another of which we’ve written about below.
You can set Auto Clicker for Mac to perform an infinite number of clicks wherever you put your cursor, and only have those clicks cease when you manually stop them. This stop and start can be achieved with buttons in Auto Clicker or by hitting the middle mouse button (if you have one) or a keyboard shortcut you set up in the program.
Auto Clicker for Mac lets you configure how much time passes between each click by inputting the delay in seconds and milliseconds. So you can set it up to click 50 times in 50 seconds, or have 50 clicks happen in 1 second, if you set the millisecond delay correctly.
This app also allows you to set the maximum number of clicks you want to have, which is great with click-based games that shut down or ban you if you click over a particular amount in a short space of time. Check a game’s terms and conditions to learn about any click limits to avoid bans, and set Auto Clicker for Mac accordingly!
You can also turn clicking sounds on and off in Auto Clicker for Mac, and set the clicks to be regular left-clicks or right-clicks on your Mac.
Auto Clicker for Mac has a free trial period, but after that it costs $6.54 for six months of use on a single Mac. There are free auto clickers for Mac you can find below, but the amount of control and versatility this one allows might make it worth paying for.

2. Mac Auto Mouse Click
The other MurGaa auto clicker we really like is Mac Auto Mouse Click. This not only clicks for you, it moves your cursor to pre-programmed locations as well. Therefore, Mac Auto Mouse Click can help automate some complex tasks.
Say you’re uploading many files to an online database, where you’re clicking the same buttons over and over. You can set up a series of actions in Mac Auto Mouse Click that select files and click those buttons for you. Setting up actions doesn’t require knowledge of coding or programming. You just move your cursor where you need it, tell Mac Auto Mouse Click to record that location with a hotkey, and set the type of click you want to happen in that location in the program.
You can move actions up and down the list to change when they happen, and edit or delete actions as you see fit. The types of clicks you can input in this auto clicker are right- and left- clicks, double-clicks, middle-clicks, and Shift-clicks, plus some automated text typing capabilities.
Although incredibly useful for tasks with repetitive clicking (and there can be a lot of those), Mac Auto Mouse Click might be a bit complex if you just want to click in one place many times, or just click your screen occasionally to keep your Mac from going to sleep.
This software also has a free trial period, but otherwise costs $9.87 for six months of use on a single Mac. The control and automation this Mac auto clicker allows might be totally worth that price for you, or it might be more than you need.

3. Mac Auto Clicker
A free auto clicker for Mac we’d recommend is Mac Auto Clicker by FileHorse. Like Auto Clicker for Mac, Mac Auto Clicker will click until you stop the program, or until it hits a particular number of clicks you set for it.
Mac Auto Clicker has a delay start option you can set, though, to make sure you have time to put your cursor in the right spot before it starts clicking. It also lets you set a time limit for the automatic clicking, if you want to stop the program that way.
Like other auto clickers on this list, you can set the time between clicks, and the time between groups of clicks in Mac Auto Clicker. You don’t need to know the exact number of milliseconds you want, though. You can set the click speed on a scale between Very Slow and Very Fast for quicker customizing and a simpler set up. If you want the precision of inputting an exact number of seconds and milliseconds, that’s still an option in this Mac auto clicker. It’s just not necessary, as the program offers another option.
Mac Auto Clicker seems to primarily work in macOS Yosemite and earlier. FileHorse provides instructions on how to get Mac Auto Clicker working on later versions of macOS, but doing so requires a few extra steps.
Still, Mac Auto Clicker offers just as much as Auto Clicker for Mac, and it’s free. In our book, doing a little more legwork to get it working on your Mac seems like a small inconvenience for a great free auto clicker.

If you’re looking for a really simple auto clicker for your Mac, iMouseTrick is the auto clicker for you. iMouseTrick lets you set the number of clicks you want (including an infinite number of clicks) as well as the time between clicks. It even lets you set a countdown before you start.
Those are all of its features, though, apart from options for hiding the iMouseTrick window and pausing its clicks when you mouse over the window. It’s therefore a very easy auto clicker to use—you mostly set the values you want by clicking and dragging on scales whose maximum values you can adjust by typing in new numbers for them. But if you want hotkey shortcuts for stopping and starting your clicks, or other more advanced options, iMouseTrick sadly doesn’t have them.
iMouseTrick is free, though, and in its simplicity it may be everything you need. We’d recommend it to those looking for an auto clicker without many frills, and to anyone who can be a little technologically challenged or technophobic from time to time.

Auto clickers are great for many computer games, but they can also be great tools if clicking often hurts your hands or is physically difficult for you to do. By reducing the amount you have to click, an auto clicker on your Mac can lessen the pain and strain of computer use.
DwellClick takes this a step further by allowing clickless operation of your computer. You just turn on the program, point your cursor somewhere with your mouse or trackpad, and wait a moment, DwellClick clicks on your behalf.
DwellClick not only left-clicks, right-clicks, and double-clicks, it can click and drag for you. So you can move windows around your screen and drag files to folders without having to hold down your mouse. You can also drag and resize things! To access these options, you just have to press the Fn key on your keyboard when DwellClick is activated and select the type of click you want from the popup panel. Preferences can also be set to turn certain clicks and features on and off in the auto clicker.
You can also set a key on your keyboard to act as a mouse click for you, and even activate hands-free options if you use a head tracker to navigate your computer or your Mac’s mouse isn’t working. DwellClick also gives a lot of visual and audio cues to let you know a click or drag has happened, if you want or need that.
DwellClick has a free trial period, and once that ends it costs $9.99 from the Mac App Store. It’s an auto clicker for Mac that’s better for reducing the number of clicks you do rather than rapidly clicking. But if you need that reduction for your hand’s or mouse’s sake, we think it’s an awesome auto clicker.
