Equifax data breach settlement

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has released more details about the pending settlement regarding the 2017 Equifax data breach. Consumers will be able to file for a claim with an online tool once the settlement is finalized.

More information is available at www.equifaxbreachsettlement.com.

Update: the FTC is now recommending that consumers affected by this data breach choose the credit monitoring option instead of the payment option, which is expected to be smaller due to the large amount of claims filed.
