About PII Detector

Copy link

The PII Detector app for Crowdin uses AWS Comprehend to scan imported files for sensitive information. It is configured through Project Settings -> File processors, allowing managers to set actions when PII is detected, such as notifying, stopping the import, or allowing it. The app checks the confidence threshold for detected PII entities, filtering based on user-defined entity types. If PII is found, it sends notifications to admins or stops the import based on the configured action. The app can only check for PII in English and Spanish languages. A small app that is a powerful tool for improving DLP and compliance.
