Privacy and security

Your privacy is important to us and we go to great lengths to protect each person's genetic information throughout the process. Here are a few of the measures we take:

  • Your personal data and genetic information are access controlled, password protected and stored in an encrypted database.
  • We assign you an ID number to separate your private information from your DNA.
  • We give multiple "privacy setting" options to choose from.
  • In addition to our privacy measures, you are also protected by GINA (Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act).

Learn about DNA testing.

There are millions of variations in your DNA that make you unique. Since you inherit these variations from your ancestors, they are also what make DNA a powerful family history tool to help you discover connections to your past.

What makes AncestryDNA so powerful

Covers both sides of your family

It uses some of the latest autosomal testing technology as a more comprehensive way to cover all branches in your tree, not just the maternal or paternal lines.

Analyses more than 700,000 markers

It surveys your entire genome at more than 700,000 locations. Other tests, such as a mtDNA and Y-DNA only look at about 50 markers.

Integrated with Ancestry

It's designed to work together with Ancestry, the world's largest online family history resource, with billions of historical records, stories and family trees.

A massive DNA collection

We've assembled one of the most comprehensive DNA datasets from around the world to compare to your DNA signature and help determine your ethnicity.

Your DNA results are just the beginning.

Your results can be a great starting point for your family history, or a way to dig even deeper into the research you've already done.
