23andMe Class Action

23andMe is a genetic testing service.

The company disclosed that a “threat actor” was able to access 6.9 million user profiles. This breach compromised users’ sensitive personal information.

23andMe users were notified of a data breach in early October 2023.

About the Class Action

In early October 2023, the 23andMe notified its users of a breach into its “DNA Relatives” feature.

Profiles include information such as a customer’s display name, how often the user logs in, their relationship labels, their predicted relationship and the percentage of DNA shared with their “DNA Relative” matches. They also may include a user’s ancestry reports and matching DNA segments, self-reported location, ancestor birth locations, family names, profile picture, and birth year.

Family Tree profiles, which are more limited, include name, relationship labels and could include birth year and self-reported location.

Frequently Asked Questions

A class action is a lawsuit which provides a method for a large group of people with common claims to come together to advance one claim on behalf of the group. Class actions are more efficient and cost-effective and allow for groups of people with common claims to gain access to the legal system and seek justice on their behalf.

A certification motion is where the court determines whether an action can be pursued as a class action. The court considers factors such as whether the claims of the class members raise common legal and/or factual issues and whether a class action is the preferable method of pursuing the claims (as opposed to individual actions).
