TScanner is an open-source utility that scans one’s personal computer for Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Out of the box, the software will search for Social Security Numbers (SSN) and Credit/Debit card numbers.
TScanner scans your computer, produces a list of files which appear to contain SSN and Credit Card Number information, and provides context of the information for you to determine whether it is correct or not. The software can be configured through its user interface to search for other types of data as long as the matching criteria can be expressed using a regular expression. Once the scanning is done, TScanner displays the candidate matches and allows the user to mark each element as a being an actual match or not.
Finally, TScanner produces an aggregate report which includes a complete set of statistics about the scan such as, how many matches were found, how many matches were validated by the user, etc...
In order to protect the privacy and security of your personal information, TScanner will never save, record or transmit any of the information it scans. Additionally, it will not make any changes to the files or programs on your computer.
