Billions of Yahoo! customers could get up to $358 as part of a settlement following a massive data breach of the company.
CNN reported the company had multiple data breaches between 2013 and 2016. If California courts approve the $117.5 million class-action settlement, those affected could be eligible for a $358 payout or two years of free credit monitoring, the outlet reported.
The site to file a claim is YahooDataBreachSettlement.com.
Here's what's needed to be eligible: A Yahoo account between Jan. 1, 2012 and Dec. 31, 2016; received notice about the data breaches; resident of the U.S. or Israel.
Like any settlement case, those who prove they already have credit monitoring may get less than the $358 depending on how many people submit claims.
"If you verify that you already have a credit monitoring service that you will keep for at least one year, you may submit a claim for a cash payment of $100.00 instead of receiving Credit Monitoring Services through the Settlement," the website said. "Payment for such a claim may be less than $100.00 or more (up to $358.80) depending on how many Settlement Class Members participate in the Settlement."
