Why does Credit Karma ask for a SS# and Credit.com does not?
I recently decided to join credit.com, as they give the Experian credit score that CK does not. The strange thing was, credit.com did not ask for my SS#. How are they able to obtain my score?

They use other info you provide

to verify who you are.  Just like Credit card offers you get in the mail, they use other identifing info.  Addresses, employers, birthdates,  phone numbers etc.  

3 or 4 of these can be used.
