(WTVA) -- Target has announced it is offering one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection to all 70 million consumers who were affected by its recent data breach in U.S. stores.
Target is using Experian's ProtectMyID program for the service.
Officials say the program will provide consumers with access to a credit report, daily credit monitoring, identity theft insurance where allowed by law and access to personalized assistance from a fraud resolution agent.
Target is giving consumers until April 23, 2014, to enroll in the program.
To enroll, consumers must go to Creditmonitoring.target.com to request an activation code by registering their name and email address.
An email from Target providing the activation code will be sent within 72 hours following the request and registrants are given until April 30 to register the code with Experian.
Purchase of any services with Experian is not required to use the credit monitoring service Target is offering.
