Requesting Personal Information Be Removed from 23andMe ASAP

Mail-in genetic testing sites like 23andMe provide a valuable service by giving you insight into your family history, so you can determine your risk factors for a wide variety of diseases that may impact your health. But, you need to give up a great deal of personal information to do so.

With the world 's first AI Consumer Champion, DoNotPay, you can get your information removed from 23andMe or any other online website database quickly and easily.

Why Is It Hard to Get Personal Information Removed From the Internet?

You've probably been told that whatever you put online stays online. And, that's pretty much true. Your data may be widely available from past social media posts to personal information such as:

  1. Your name
  2. Address
  3. Telephone number
  4. Birthdate
  5. Family connections

It 's difficult to get your personal information removed from the internet when you're not sure exactly where it is. Even if one site removes it, another site may not.

How to Get Your Personal Data Removed From 23andMe on Your Own

According to the 23andMe site, your privacy is very important and you have complete control over it. In theory, you 're supposed to be able to follow a fairly straightforward process to request your information be deleted. But, you should know that certain data won't be deleted including:

  • Genetic and/or self-reported information that you previously provided consent for.
  • Your genetic information, date of birth, and sex.
  • Your email addresses.

In other words, you can go through all the proper steps and still not be able to completely remove yourself from the 23andMe database and website.
