The plaintiffs who are involved in this class action lawsuit have claimed that Experian has failed to protect the data of about 15 million customers. This lawsuit also claims that this agency has willfully ignored the weaknesses in their data security systems.
The Experian class action said that the personal information was available for sale on the dark web after the security breach. But the plaintiffs allege that, due to this massive data breach, they will have to monitor their financial accounts regularly.
With this, Experian does not admit any wrongdoing, but still, they will settle the settlement and offer the customers a chance to recover the damages done to them.

- Every eligible class member will have access to the two years of credit free monitoring. Moreover, they will also get $40 as a default time award.
