"FamilyTreeDNA one of the larger makers of at-home genealogy test kits has disclosed that its quietly been giving the FBI access to its database of 1 million DNA profiles to help solve violent crime."

It's understood that they're voluntarily providing law enforcement access once those agencies have provided the appropriate documentation; however, this is a privacy concern for all who utilize the service.

FamilyTreeDNA has stated that they don't intend to be a 'data broker.' Hmmmmmm . . . certainly makes one wonder about their intent. Wink

Article Title: "Home DNA kit company says its working with the FBI"
