Protect Personal Information with Identity Finder

Identity Finder screenshotIdentity Finder is a tool designed to protect your personal data, such as credit card numbers, passwords, birth date, social security number, bank account numbers and even telephone numbers. It does this by looking for sensitive information on your computer and on our network.

We suggest you take a few moments this semester to run this program. Most of us will be surprised at how much of our personal information is sitting on our office computers, S drive and T drive folders.

Please load the Wizard and follow the instructions on screen. Identity Finder will ask you if you would like to encrypt or shred each file that contains the personal data that you were searching for. If you know you won’t need it again just shred the sensitive data and there will be a lessened risk in case your account is compromised.
