Identity Finder

idfinderIdentity Finder is a program that scans your computer for Sensitive Personal Information (SPI). TCU’s configuration of the Identity Finder software scans your computer for Social Security Numbers, Credit Card Numbers, and Passwords. If confidential numbers are found on your computer, the Identity Finder tool allows you to:


  • Shred the file containing confidential information, which permanently and irreversibly removes the file from your computer.
  • Scrub the identity match contained in a file, which replaces the confidential number found with “XXXXX” without deleting the original file. This option is not available for documents found in your TCU email.
