    MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KTHV) - Following a recent security breach, Target is offering free credit monitoring for its customers for a year.

    The offer, including identity theft protection, is available to all customers who shopped in U.S. stores.
    Target's website states the following regarding the credit monitoring offer:

    "After a thorough review of options, Target has chosen ProtectMyID, provided by Experian-a leading global information services company that helps individuals understand and keep track of their credit reports, as well as monitor for and resolve identity theft. Request an activation code before April 23, 2014 and then register for the offer through ProtectMyID before April 30, 2014.

    In addition to a complimentary copy of their credit report, guests who sign up will receive daily credit monitoring, identity theft insurance (except where prohibited by law), and have access to personalized assistance from a highly trained Fraud Resolution Agent. Access to the Fraud Resolution Agent will continue even after other benefits of the initial one-year ProtectMyID membership expire. After 12 months, those who register have the option to continue their memberships at their own expense."
