Cops are asking Ancestry.com and 23andMe for their customers’ DNA

Uh oh,

“Your relative’s DNA could turn you into a suspect,” warns Wired”.

Both Ancestry.com and 23andMe stipulate in their privacy policies that they will turn information over to law enforcement if served with a court order. 23andMe says it’s received a couple of requests from both state law enforcement and the FBI, but that it has “successfully resisted them.”

Is it only a matter of time before they start handing over DNA records?
