New Hampshire is among the 48 states that have reached a settlement with Equifax, after its 2017 breach of consumer data.

 

That breach exposed the data of 147 million Americans. Over 600,000 New Hampshire residents were impacted. 

 

The $600 million settlement is the largest ever for a data breach. 

 

Over a million dollars of that will be set aside for New Hampshire.
