Download OperationFind_Mac_Linux.zip from the website to your desktop.

Extract the .zip file in the process you prefer.

Open the terminal.

Change to the directory you just extracted.

type python Operation_Find.pyw -p /path/to/search -o /path/to/output/folder -t html|csv [-a | -c | -s]

-p = The path to the directory to be searched. The path will be searched recursively.
-o = The path to the directory that will contain Find_SSNs output files. (Try to make sure that the output location is not in the search location)
-t = Type of main report file you would like Find_SSNs to produce. Only html or csv are supported.
-a = Search files for both U.S. Social Security numbers and Credit Card numbers.
-c = Search files only for Credit Card numbers.
-s = Search files only for U.S. Social Security numbers.

Search progress should appear shortly

The report will consist of either a Find_SSNs.html or a Find_SSNs.csv (depending on the type of report that you choose) file along with a Find_SSNs.txt file.
