Your Social Security Number (SSN) allows us to run accurate and thorough background checks.
We use your SSN to supplement the background check process by identifying previous addresses where you have lived and other names you may have used.
For example, if you lived in another state and took out a mortgage there, that address would be associated with your SSN. Checkr may use that address as a pointer to conduct more thorough research during the background check process.
Your personal information also helps us to ensure the quality of records, so that we can report as accurately as possible. For example, a SSN helps to distinguish between applicants with common names.
Checkr keeps your personal information encrypted and safe. By law, we are prohibited from sharing any of your personally identifying information or your background report with anyone other than you and the company you applied with.
