I saw this recently on The Center Square – Florida bill would classify ‘DNA theft’ as a felony property crime: https://www.thecentersquare.com/florida/florida-bill-would-classify-dna-theft-as-a-felony-property-crime/article_c127dd32-6b18-11eb-8d8c-e3e1f07f9b17.html. Somewhat longer article with more details about how each situation would be covered. I know some people want to get DNA without telling people they will use it. In some cases, they only tell the individual it will only be used by one company when they plan on uploading it to other companies and websites.

(The Center Square) – Florida in 2020 became the nation’s first state to enact a “DNA privacy” law prohibiting life, disability and long-term care insurance companies from using genetic tests for coverage purposes.
Sen. Ray Rodrigues, R-Estero, filed Senate Bill 1140 and Rep. Josie Tomkow, R-Polk City, introduced House Bill 833 Monday. Both would prohibit collection or retention of DNA samples, and the analysis and disclosure of results, without authorization, with criminal penalties for specified violations.
