Why would a job require entering SSN on their own site before even getting hired?

Anonymous
I find it weird. This job application requires entering SSN, when I asked HR they said that’s their way and won't change it. She got mad and said she will tell the manager about me not wanting the job. I mean they did not even decide to hire me or not why do they need my identity info just hanging there on their site?
