How do banks add authorized users without a ssn?
I have added my boyfriend as an authorized user to my paypal credit card, but they do not require adding his SSN. How will they identify him to report to the credit bureaus? We have separate addresses but live in the same zip code. Will this be enough info to identify him to the credit bureaus?

First reply is not necessarily correct. Children, or people, living at the same address, who have credit to their name often do not need an ss# to be added as an authorized user.
