As part of the SecureU initiative, the University of Connecticut has partnered up with Identity Finder, LLC to bring the Identity Finder software to all faculty, staff, and students of the University of Connecticut free of charge!

Identity Finder is a special software that gives users the ability to find and protect sensitive data on their computer(s), helping to prevent data loss and identity theft. Identity Finder reduces the risk of data leakage and identity theft by discovering and securing sensitive information across computers.
