How genealogy data can lead to identity theft

How genealogy data can lead to identity theft | FootprintDigital | Scoop.it

The problem with online geanealogy databases such as Gini is that they contain information on living persons which is often used for identity verification.

That would include things like mother’s maiden name and birth date. While such information can be obtained through court records, these public records are usually offline and a fee is required to obtain the information. Genealogy research tools are potentially dangerous for privacy - you may not be entering information yourself, but some distant relative interested in family history might be exposing your information along with everyone else in the extended family.
