PII Crawler runs locally and can be ran in an air-gapped environment. It doesn’t make network calls that it isn’t instructed to with the exception of a one-time license registration. PII is not gathered as it scans. It increments data-match counts and associates these counts with the file or data source. Only when instructed and on a single file scan will PII Crawler return actual PII data in its result output. This avoids accidentally propagating PII by sending it to an alerting or ticketing system.

PII Crawler’s scanfile single file option will reveal the PII detected in a single file. This can be helpful when it is not obvious why a file was flagged. This can happen in file types that can sometimes contain hidden data tables with PII like .xlsx, .pptx, etc.
