If you have a Sony Playstation network account, you probably have heard of the massive attack on Sony’s PlayStation network. This led to hackers walking away with user account data possibly including personal information like credit card numbers. 

Sony has in turn arranged for one year of free identity theft protection for PlayStation Network users offered by Debix. Sony has sent an email to all the affected users and it says

Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment have made arrangements with Debix to offer AllClear ID PLUS to eligible PlayStation®Network and Qriocity account holders in the United States who are concerned about identity theft.

AllClear ID PLUS is a premium identity protection service that uses advanced technology to deliver alerts to help protect you from identity theft. The service also provides identity theft insurance coverage and hands-on help from expert fraud investigators.

Sony has arranged, at no charge to eligible PlayStation®Network and Qriocity account holders, for twelve months of this service to be provided by Debix to those who choose to enroll. In order to be eligible, account holders must be residents of the United States with active accounts as of April 20, 2011.

If interested, please submit your email address by June 28, 2011, at 11:59:59 PM CST at: us.playstation.com/news/consumeralerts/identity-theft-protection.

Please note, you must enter the same email address used to register your PlayStation®Network or Qriocity account. Once your email address is validated, you will be sent your AllClear ID PLUS activation code.

So, if you have a Sony PlayStation network account make sure you make use of this free 1 year of identity theft protection offer from Sony. Even if you didn’t receieve an email, you can follow the above link to get in on this and make sure you aren’t affected by this security breach.

    Now that it has been a year and the pre-paid ID service is gone, has anyone experienced any problems? I would think the hackers would have just waited the year and just waited for the people to relax and try again. If I was a victim, I would get my own ID protection and keep it going just to be safe.
