What’s this settlement about?
A lawsuit was filed alleging that Robinhood failed to use adequate security practices in connection with its trading platform, making customer accounts vulnerable to account takeovers. Plaintiffs’ lawsuit alleges that many Robinhood accounts were in fact taken over by unauthorized users.
Many customers who had an account takeover or who notified Robinhood about a possible account takeover did not experience unauthorized transactions or lose any funds. For those who did, Robinhood provided reimbursement upon confirming the claims of unauthorized account activity. Additionally, there is no evidence that unauthorized access to customer accounts was caused by a breach of Robinhood’s computer network.
Plaintiffs allege that customers were nevertheless harmed because they spent time and money responding to the possible unauthorized access incidents.
Who is eligible for a refund?
…a potential unauthorized access incident to your Robinhood account between January 1, 2020, and April 27, 2022, that either (i) you reported to Robinhood, or (ii) Robinhood reported to you.

What is a class action lawsuit settlement?
For example, a class action lawsuit is one with multiple plaintiffs. In other words, there are more than one person being represented by the lawsuit. In other words, a plaintiff or plaintiffs file the case on behalf of many people who were affected by aren’t involved in the actual suit. For example, if you purchased an item that was later determined to be involved in a class action lawsuit, you may be entitled to compensation. If you’re included in the class or group of people affected, then you can file a claim to receive money, coupons or replacement products. But, each case is different, and each will specify who is included. In addition, class action lawsuits may require proof that you are part of the group of affected people. In this case, proof of purchase or other specified proof is needed. However, in some cases, no proof is required. In that case, you can file a claim without proving that you are part of the class of people affected. Of course, when you file a claim you are doing so under penalty of perjury. So, do not file if you do not qualify.
