Have You Ever Taken A DNA Test?

Asked by vimukthi Promote - View in Steemit - Audit

I recently came across this article: At-home DNA testing company gives the FBI access to its database and I was wondering if anybody had made the mistake of giving up such private information to have some cool fun with new technology. The worst pat is this:

> The firm also clarified that the FBI will not be able to access more information than the average user can. "We came to the conclusion that if law enforcement created accounts, with the same level of access to the database as the standard FamilyTreeDNA user, they would not be violating user privacy and confidentiality," Greenspan said. Feds will still have to secure a subpoena or a search warrant if it wants to see data not visible to a normal user.

So technically these information is actually available to the b\public too. That's just terrible IMO
