While I am here, I opened an account to a popular Bank of the United States, where some money are being deposited now and then. When I opened the account (I asked for the simplest and minimum one), I was told that I should bring to them the Social Security Number, when I was going to get one (I am not even sure why I need that number, but anyway, I just got it).
The thing is that I heard that I should NOT expose that number to others as much as possible. So..should I give to the bank?
Note that my bank account is already functioning properly and I am not interested in getting extra functionality.
