|WINDOWS 8 NOTE: Identity Finder 5.1.0 is not supported with Windows 8, but will be supported with the release of version 6.1.
|WINDOWS OS IMPORTANT NOTE: If you already have Identity Finder v3.0.14 installed, DO NOT uninstall it! Doing so will delete your Password Vault. Running the Identity Finder v3.4.8 installer (below) will upgrade your existing Identity Finder and preserve your settings and password vault.
|MAC OS IMPORTANT NOTE: Identity Finder is available for Intel-based Macs ONLY.

This software will periodically contact servers in the Carnegie Mellon University Computing Services infrastructure to check for updates and configuration changes. In the process of doing so, the software will send the following information to these servers:
- System platform (Mac, Windows, etc.)
- The hostname (name of the computer)
- The version of the client software
- All IP addresses currently in use by the computer
- All ethernet (MAC) addresses of the computer
This data will only be sent if/when you are connected to the Carnegie Mellon University network (wired, wireless, VPN, etc.). It will not be transmitted otherwise. It will not contain any of the findings (identity matches, location matches, etc.).
