What is Identity Finder?

Identity Finder is a program that will scan your computer for protected information (e.g., Social Security numbers, Drivers' License numbers, credit card numbers) in accordance with IU's policies for working with institutional data.

UITS encourages installing Identity Finder on any IU-owned computers. Run scans regularly, taking appropriate follow-up action, to ensure adherence to Indiana University policies and guidelines. Since IU has a central service that can provide further protection, consult your IT Pro or computer administrator if available.

At Indiana University, Identity Finder is available to students, faculty, and staff. For details, see At IU, how do I download and install Identity Finder?

For help using Identity Finder, see How do I use Identity Finder?
