Protect your DNA!
Huge gaps in privacy laws

Because of huge gaps in our nation’s privacy laws, DNA results from those popular at-home genetic testing kits can be bought, sold, and traded without the customer’s consent.

Consumer Reports is calling for a strong, straightforward privacy standard that puts you in charge of your DNA. Sign our petition: Genetic-testing companies must always get your permission before using your DNA or sharing it with other companies.

We’re calling for strong privacy standards for direct-to-consumer genetic testing programs. No one’s DNA should be bought, sold or traded without their consent!

  • Customers must give their permission before sharing DNA data with other companies 
  • Customer DNA data must be secured from unauthorized access
  • DNA data cannot be used for insurance underwriting 
  • Customers can’t be charged for exercising their privacy rights
