First, let's install presidio using
pip. For detailed documentation, see the installation docs.
Install from PyPI:
pip install presidio_analyzer pip install presidio_anonymizer python -m spacy download en_core_web_lg
A simple call to Presidio Analyzer:
from presidio_analyzer import AnalyzerEngine text = "His name is Mr. Jones and his phone number is 212-555-5555" analyzer = AnalyzerEngine() analyzer_results = analyzer.analyze(text=text, language="en") print(analyzer_results)
Next, we'll go over ways to customize Presidio to specific needs by adding PII recognizers, using context words, NER models and more.
