Social security # for xfinity mobile

Called to sign up for xfinity mobile. Rep says there is no way to sign up without giving up social security number. I find this ridiculous as i offered other ways to verify my identity. With companies having more and more difficulty protecting customers personal information, nobone should require ssn besides banks. Did not sign up for this reason. I have an established account with service address, disappointed with this comcast policy as customer and shareholder.

Hi Bambino9999 for some XFINITY Internet customers who are interested in signing up for XFINITY Mobile, we may need to learn a little more about you by running your credit. We'll always ask your permission first. If we need to gather this info, you'll be prompted at checkout to perform a credit check. . A social security number is needed for a credit check. 


Thank you
