You may get $358 as Part of Yahoo Data Breach Settlement

“A qualifying Yahoo account (for settlement money) includes ones with Yahoo Fantasy Sports, Yahoo Finance, Tumblr and Flickr,” the report said

If you live in the US or in Israel, had a Yahoo account between 2012 and 2016 and have got an email from Yahoo on the settlement claim over data breach, you could be eligible for $358 or more.

Yahoo had in 2017 announced that of all its users “nearly 3 billion in 2013” were impacted by a massive data breach.

Now part of Oath “a subsidiary of Verizon”, Yahoo said it is providing notice to additional user accounts affected by an August 2013 data theft previously disclosed by the company on December 14, 2016.

Hackers were able to gain access to email addresses, telephone numbers, birth dates, passwords and answers to security questions.

Yahoo then began sending email notifications to the additional affected user accounts.
