Identity Finder Information Hunter Makes Mac Debut

Identity Finder announced Thursday the Mac debut of its self-titled Identity Finder software, an app intended to help users find and protect personal ID information that might be on their Mac.

Identity Finder Mac Edition searches through files and e-mails for personal information, including social security numbers, passwords, credit card details, PIN numbers, dates of birth, phone numbers, and more. Once found, the software allows user to securely erase the information or encrypt it.

The firm is marketing the software to families and individuals looking to maintain their own systems, as well as businesses looking to keep company computers clean, secure, and in compliance with local privacy laws.

Identity Finder has long been marketed for Windows, and today's announcement marks the first foray into the Mac market. The software is priced at US$9.95 for a single user license, with penny-increment discounts for three and five-Mac licenses.

You can download a trial version of the software, and the company offers a video demonstrating its use.
