The FTC has ordered Equifax to compensate victims of their 2017 security breach. The 147 million American's who had their data stolen are entitled to either 10 years of free credit monitoring or $125 if they already have a monitoring service. You are also entitled to compensation if you spent time or money as a result of fraud resulting from the breach.

Except for the email address, you are giving them info they already have, they are just authenticating you are you.

I gave the a toss-away gmail address, one that is used for six months or so then tossed.

In any case, at least they are giving me $125 for the info. It would e nice if all the web trackers did the same. ;)
