This blog has been totally rewritten in light of the recent security breach at GEDmatch, Jan 2021.
I have previously wrestled with the dilemma of whether or not to keep my DNA on the GEDmatch website and prior to this breach, I had been quite happy to do so. Now after another breach, even with a new Company at the helm, I can no longer justify keeping my DNA on a website that offers so little in the way of confidence that my data and DNA are safe and that they can prevent this from happening again.
I am sure many will argue for and many against, but we all have to reach our own conclusions and decisions and I have decided to remove all 4 DNA kits that I manage.
The idea and concept is brilliant, a website where all Autosomal tests can be viewed alongside each other sounds too good to be true and in the end that is sadly the case.
