No, putting it in a hidden field is same as showing it to a tech-savvy
admin. Unless admins are supposed to see the SSN (and are authorized
to), there is no reason for it to be in a hidden field.

If you really need it there (for some future requests in the form), it
might be better to instead put the SSN's unique ID from the database
(1,2,3) in the hidden field, and using it to get the SSN in the next
request on the server side.
