So talked about this in a previous post, and thought it looked like a cool idea. It still seems to be in theory anyway but their sign-up process is non-secured and they ask for your SSN. What kind of modern company would have a web-service that requires sensitive information and not have it encrypted? I will give them the benefit of the doubt and say that because it is brand new perhaps it is just something that was over-looked. Even though that is a big thing to over-look. I sent them an e-mail about it and have yet to hear back from them.

Thank you for the catch.

We have secured the page where the SSN is asked for.
