For privacy, each person is given a Genographic Project ID (GPID). The GPID is random and non-sequential. The project does not store any personal information with the GPID. The project uses this number to track your lab test and results. You will also use it to access your account. Once you receive your results, you will have the option of remaining anonymous or joining the Genographic community. The choice is yours.

Note: You should keep your GPID in a safe location. If you lose the ID provided with the kit, we cannot recover your information.
