COLUMBUS (WDTN) – People who were victims of Equifax’s 2017 data breach have through Wednesday to file a claim to receive up to 10 years of free credit monitoring.

“These credit monitoring services will go a long way in shielding data breach victims from the perils of identity theft,” Yost said. “This sort of protection normally costs hundreds of dollars per year, but there’s still time to get it for free.”

Equifax and victims reached a $600 million settlement in 2019 with a 47-state coalition of attorney generals.
