Since we are in a heavily regulated industry the SEC, via the 2001 USA PATRIOT Act, requires us to verify your Social Security number in order to identify and prevent potential terrorists and money launderers from gaining access to the stock markets.

Rest assured all your personal information is always encrypted and never accessible or visible to anyone within Public that is not licensed by FINRA to do so.

If you ever have questions, the team is always here for you, so feel free to give us a shout on the app’s Live Chat or via email at support@public.com! 😁
