(RNN) - After a data breach potentially compromised the personal information of some 70 million people, Target's promised free credit monitoring to customers went live Monday.

Guests have until April 23, 2014 to take advantage of one free year of credit monitoring by signing up at creditmonitoring.target.com.

Those seeking the protection must provide Target with their full name and email address. The company will then send an activation code within one to five days.

After receiving an activation code, guests may visit www.protectmyid.com/target to enroll.

The service is offered to anyone who has shopped at Target stores, not just during the timeframe when they believe the hack happened between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15, when the company says they discovered the breach.

Target says information taken included names, addresses, phone numbers and emails, but that there is no indication social security numbers were taken.

Just because a customer shopped at Target during that timeframe does not automatically mean their information was taken. Customers are urged to monitor statements and report any suspicious activity immediately.
