Frequently Asked Questions

Why not store my genetic data online ?

People are uploading their genetic data every day to various websites on the internet. While it is both convenient and awesome to be able to utilize the data, there is a risk to personal data each and every time a file is uploaded for storage on the internet. 

When reading through the privacy policies of the many companies offering genetic reports, you will notice that your genetic data, as well as your personal data, will be sold as a company asset if the company is bought out. Just imagine what the genetic data plus user information is worth to a large company. 

How are the topics reports created if I'm not uploading my data?

Each time you log in as a member, you can select your raw genetic data file. The data is read into a scripting file in your browser sorting out your genotypes and showing your information in the reports. Nothing is transmitted across the internet – these actions all happen privately on your own computer. 

Our goal at Genetic Lifehacks’ is to protect your privacy. In other words, you control your data (literally) and don’t rely on an online server for its protection.

Please only use the online reports on a trusted home computer. Don’t load your data on a public computer…

Why a membership model instead of just selling ads?

Advertising is an effective way to support websites and keep the content free. But there is an inherent conflict between offering bias-free content and supporting a website with ads or sponsorships.  

Also, advertising on a website utilizes ways to track users from website to website, building a detailed profile of everything the user looks at and interacts with. When it comes to health issues and genetic data, the last thing you want to happen is to be tracked and profiled on such private information.  

Which file types and browsers work with the reports?

Currently, 23andMe and AncestryDNA .txt files work for the summary reports. If you have data from another company in the same format as the 23andMe data, it may also work but is not guaranteed.

The topics summary reports and interactive features for members work well with most modern browsers, such as Chrome, Brave, Safari, and Firefox. Unfortunately, the reports will not work with Internet Explorer. 

What are the member's only articles like?

The member’s only articles are similar in format to the free articles, but offer expanded topics and the most up to date research. The free articles cover the basic health topics that everyone needs to know about – like diabetes risk factors and Alzheimer’s disease.  Membership gives you access to articles on optimization, athletic performance, and supplement interactions with genes. 

How long does the membership last?

The annual membership gives you access to all the features for a full year. Check your genetic data on a report whenever you want to and as many times as you would like. 

At the end of the year, your membership can automatically renew – or you can cancel it. Our goal is to provide you with high-quality content, not rip you off. If you aren’t happy with the membership, contact us any time.
