Identity Finder

Right now, social security numbers, credit cards, bank accounts, passwords, and other highly sensitive personal information are sitting idly on your computer leaving you and your family exposed to identity theft. You may not be able to find all the places it's hidden, but hackers and thieves know where to look.They have developed viruses, spyware, back doors and other malicious code to steal this information.

Anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-spam don't offer in-depth searching to protect you and your family. Identity Finder goes deep, searching the computer to locate and secure potentially dangerous data - even when you don't know it exists.
