People can find you by analyzing your DNA. Do you care about your loss of privacy?

We often see news about the use of DNA analysis to find lost relatives, identify anonymous bodies, locate criminals, or identify other "people of interest." The search generally begins by entering one person's DNA into a genealogy website to locate family members, then proceeds from there. Using this technique, anyone with means and interest could likely find you based on a single sample of your DNA.
