"Still one of the best security products of this age.."

April 01, 2010  |  By JCitizen

 |  Version: Identity Finder Free Edition 4.1

Pros

Finds all sensitive information on your hard drive.

Cons

Would like a break on three PCs, this is only one at a time deal. Would also be better if they had a lifetime license.

Summary

This amazing utility does just what it says, and so fast your head will spin! I really like how they give you a choice in either smudging sensitive information on a document, or simply encrypting them. This is a big improvement over the older version I had.

I like using the wizard for simple granularity, but many will like that there are three choices as search methods. Also you now can search for specific information to make sure it doesn't exist on the hard drive. These and other security improvements make me more confident that the application is not inadvertently storing this information in the system files also. The finder technology seems to be able to find this information anywhere. I was shocked to find out I was not cleaning FireFox up correctly and the saved form data had my credit card information and SSN#!!!!! This really got me angry at myself too, as I though I was doing a better job using my password/encryption vault a little better than this.

This is really a good security check to make sure you've never made an entry mistake or fouled up online and left something behind on your hard drive!! If you do banking and everything else personal online, this is a must have application!

The thieves are just getting too sophisticated to leave anything to chance now days. The price was well worth it. How much is your financial data and good credit worth to you??

I do not work for any single person or company; I just detest letting criminals run all over innocent folks!!

"Fast, efficient, and turns up stuff you never suspected"

December 01, 2009  |  By sriskin

 |  Version: Identity Finder Free Edition 4.1

Pros

I am not a novice; I am very security conscious; this software uncovered credit card numbers on my machine I had no inkling were being stored. But these incidents were not done by marginal firms but by major & trusted online merchants. Well done.

Cons

I'm delighted; I've made a number of referrals.
