DNA & identity theft

With the new DNA technique it enables you to trace your ancestry through DNA. Exciting yes, of course I think it is but in order to find potential matches it means you have to have a relative that submitted their DNA to one of the many companies.

For KADs in particular and adoptees in general it might be a great tool – or a last resort. Koreans still don’t submit their DNA to these sites unless they’ve migrated to the US.

But if someone’s certain they have ancestors in the US, or want physical proof of a blood relative it could be good.

Lately with all the new breeches of privacy and threats of identity theft if you ever submitted your DNA it basically means there’s a slight chance your results could be stolen which basically mean your identity could be stolen.

Beware.
