Identity Finder Installation Instructions

Before you install

  • If you already have Identity Finder installed, DO NOT uninstall it! Doing so will delete your Password Vault. Running the latest Identity Finder installer (below) will upgrade your existing Identity Finder and preserve your settings and password vault.
  • Identity Finder is not currently compatible with Windows 8 or OS X 10.9 (Mavericks). Compatibility will be available with a future update.
  • DSP Clients should contact DSP if they do not already have Identity Finder installed.
