"Free" version asks for SSN/other very private info but doesn't really use it 1 Helpful

"Free" version asks for your SSN/address/employment number/birthdays/etc, as if it was going to print forms for you. No, it isn't. Unless you buy a subscription.

I'm totally pro developers getting paid for their good work, but if you're not planning to buy - THEY JUST RIP OFF YOUR SENSITIVE INFORMATION.

"Free" version does some fine analysis but doesn't give you anything you can go with, but two numbers it deduced somehow. You have to pay to do anything with it.
