My view is that the fears are irrational. To illustrate, consider the fact that
everything that I had about that branch of the family I got by simply doing
internet searches! What I have is already out there on the web, largely posted by
the family themselves.

I use TNG, which is an inexpensive family tree program that can easily be
configured to disallow any access to family tree data without logging in. I have
no idea if it is hackable, but anyone who is that invested in data about my family
probably could get through anything, if you know what I mean.
