Target offers free credit monitoring in response of data breach

Posted: Updated:

Target said Monday that its customers may now sign up for a free year of credit monitoring and identity theft protection, as part of its response to a massive data breach that may have leaked information on at least 100 million customers.

To sign up, customers are asked to go to a Target Web site and enter their e-mail address to receive an activation code; Target said the e-mail address entered at this site will only be used to send the code and not for any other purpose.

Anyone who has shopped at Target may sign up for the service. If you share a credit or debit card used at Target store with another person, both of you may sign up for the credit monitoring, according to a set of frequently asked questions posted on Target's corporate Web site.

Shoppers have until April 23 to register for their activation code. All codes must be redeemed by April 30.
