WASHINGTON (WDVM) — It’s been just under 2 years since Equifax announced a data breach that exposed the personal information of 147 million people.

As a part of a settlement, the company agreed to spend up to $425 million to directly help those affected.

Morgan Wright reports the settlement includes up to 4 years of free credit monitoring or $125 cash, plus additional help for those whose stolen id was actually used by the bad guys.
