Why is SSN encrypted?

The software does not store the applicant's Social Security Number (SSN) in the system for fraud prevention reasons. SSN number is encrypted and the Rental application will only display the last four digits of the applicant's SSN, so when you order a screening report you don't have to worry about protecting an applicant's personal information. When you run the screening report the SSN is securely passed to the screening provider via API.
