If you are from California, the statute of limitations is 3 years, but if data breach class action has started, it typically has short deadlines. So you should submit a claim as soon as possible.

If you are from the UK - it is currently 6 years, however it is 1 year if it involves a breach of privacy as a human right. However, if a data breach claim was consolidated into a group claim, it typically has short deadlines. So you should submit your claim at your earliest convenience.
