... People STILL don't read the fine print. I love all the indignant responses I've seen on Twitter from people claiming "They can't use my image"! Yes, yes they can, you gave them permission ;)!

This reminds me of the DNA test tool marketed to "find your roots" when in fact once you do that the company then owns your DNA *FOREVER* and who knows what it will be used for.
No thanks

If you read the fine print for any app. It is more or less the same thing with this. This is a non-story.

I think I read that this guy was caught because relatives ordered their DNA tests, and his identity was derived from that. And I believe Vancouver is looking at trying the same approach on one of their cold cases.

Then there’s this:
https://www.google.ca/amp/s/techcrunch. ... h-dna/amp/

They’ve linked 33 people to police cases...

It’s apparently not enough to avoid using the DNA tests yourself if you’re a serial killer... You also have to keep your family members from doing so too.

Has already been used in the US to find people responsible for cold-case crimes (primarily murderers, serial killers). They aren't even finding the people by the criminal having done one of the tests, they're doing it by identifying their relatives that did!

Say they have DNA evidence from crime scene(s) but no one to match it to. They get the 23andme or whatever websites to run it and find any possible matches or persons of relation. Then they go from there and it's not really to hard to find the culprit(s).

Has also been found admissible/constitutional since police are obtaining the DNA through a private company they are paying for the information. Also due to the terms of what you agree to when you do those tests you leave it open for the companies to sell this info to government/law enforcement--no civil recourse either. Granted a mere relative of a serial killer probably doesn't care and in this respect it's really not that bad a thing; but, it's still pretty messed up what they can do these days! :lol: If you ever committed a crime or plan to be sure not to take one of these tests or you'll soon be added to the never ending list of stupid criminals. Good luck though, stopping anyone remotely related you from doing one LOL.

Solution seems clear...
Whenever someone asks a question that starts with "Why do they..." or "Why don't they...", the answer is always a) money, b) stupidity, or c) both.
