I’ve spent hours uploading my family tree when a curator altered and blocked me from key members of my own family. They even took over my grandparents and parents names. Their DOB, full names etc are exposed.
This is a prime target for id theft. I contacted Geni, who said to contact them directly even though they blocked me. Geni doesn’t want to get involved in these issues for whatever reason.
What started out as a good idea quickly devolved into a privacy nightmare as soon as the curators got involved.
Stay away from this site if you value your privacy and control over your own data.
In summary, I would not recommend Geni to a friend.
