Prevent Identity Theft

Penn State students, faculty, and staff can now protect and secure their home computers with Identity Finder's Home Edition software.

The software helps users prevent identity theft by detecting and protecting personally identifiable information (PII), such as social security numbers, credit card numbers, bank/financial institution account information, and driver's license numbers.

Penn State's licensing agreement with Identity Finder, LLC, for faculty and staff use on University-owned machines provides the Penn State community with a significant discount on the software for use on personal machines. The software is free to students and offered to faculty and staff at a substantially reduced cost.  For more details, please see the article Identity Finder Home Edition Now Available to Penn State Students, Faculty, and Staff.
