23 reasons not to reveal your DNA...
You may be discriminated against in the future. In the United States, health insurers and workplaces are not allowed to discriminate based on DNA. But the law does not apply to life insurance or disability insurance. Who knows in your case, where you live? Some day you could be compelled to share genetic information with your own insurer.

My question is, is the DNA your sending them covered under hippa laws? I mean, can a law enforcement agency compel them to turn over said DNA just like cell phone records? I mean since you're not receiving medical care It doesn't seem to fall under hippa, it's a service, just like a Netflix account? It seems awesome but I don't like the idea of my DNA floating around.
