It is difficult to determine the legitimacy of a website or settlement without further information. However, in general, you should exercise caution when providing personal and financial information online. It is recommended that you do some research on the website and the settlement before proceeding. If you are unsure about the legitimacy of the website or settlement, you can contact your local consumer protection agency or seek legal advice.

Hey @Brie
Yes, it's real. Read this article from Malwarebytes: US Facebook users can now claim Cambridge Analytica settlement cash
I'm sure that a lot of scams will arise from this, but this is legitimate as said in the Malwarebytes article. Always double-check the site URL and the email adress, if in doubt don't hesitate to ask.

As part of the settlement, US Facebook users—those still active and those who have already deleted their accounts—will be compensated financially. CNN points potentially affected and eligible users to this claim form.

It takes only a few minutes to complete. Although the form asks for personal information, it clarifies that what users provide "will be processed only for purposes of effectuating the settlement."

Because of the amounts of money involved, and the personal information required to make a claim, readers are advised to be careful of imposter claim forms and websites asking for their details.

Furthermore, claimants are advised to whitelist the email address, confirmation@facebookuserprivacysettlement.com, to ensure they receive future correspondence from the settlement administrator should they need to get in touch.
