Most of us have stacks and stacks of digital documents. I just checked and my Documents folder is 14 GB. That’s thousands of spreadsheets, text files, Word documents, and web pages. There is a chance, a risk, that sometime I put personal information somewhere in that stack.
Want to scour your hard drive for this personal information? Find credit card numbers, social security numbers, passwords, and the like? There’s a free tool available for this.
Identity Finder free edition for consumers:
Start protecting your identity on your computer for free and see the power of Identity Finder. Simply download, install, and run Identity Finder on your computer to find credit cards numbers and passwords that are vulnerable to identity theft and fraud. You can search files that commonly contain private personal information such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe PDF, text, and html. Once found, use powerful tools to permanently delete files, remove passwords from Firefox and Internet Explorer for Windows, and secure sensitive information.
