Identity Finder Searches Out All the Sensitive Data on Your Computer

Windows: Free utility Identity Finder scans your hard drive looking for sensitive information, like credit card numbers and passwords.

Similar to previously mentioned Sensitive Number Finder, Identity Finder searches your Windows user folder, including files and browser data, for possible credit card numbers or passwords, and then lets you know so you can do something about it. The program also has a few options for dealing with that data, like “shredding” the file (which will make it unrecoverable), encrypting the file, or quarantining it.
