The Google mobile web search giant is giving users an extra three months to pay off their phone bill after a massive data breach exposed millions of consumers’ personal data.
The company says it’s offering a one-time fee of $99 to those customers who have not yet paid for a phone bill.
The Google statement does not disclose when exactly this fee will be applied.
The company did not say when it planned to start processing payments.
The Wall Street Journal reports that some users are also being offered a one time fee of a maximum of $1,500, or an additional $1 per month for up to three months.
Google also said that users who have already paid for their phone service but did not pay a bill for at least six months will not be affected.
The announcement comes amid rising concerns that consumers are losing control of their personal data after the data breach at Equifax revealed data from as many as 22 million Americans.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is investigating the breach, which it says has cost consumers hundreds of millions of dollars.
