Here’s how to claim your $100 from Yahoo’s massive data breach settlement

Yahoo is close to reaching a $117.5 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit over a series of data breaches that affected users between 2012 and 2016 — and you’re likely eligible for your $100 cut or free credit monitoring if you had an account during that time.

The class-action lawsuit comes after several major data breaches or “data security intrusions” — essentially when a hacker got into the system but didn’t take any information — that plagued Yahoo over the course of several years.
