Identity Theft Protection Offer for PlayStation Network and Qriocity Customers

Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on May 25, 2011 // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

Starting today, PlayStation Network and Qriocity account holders in the United States can begin the enrollment process for the identity theft protection program by visiting http://us.playstation.com/news/consumeralerts/identity-theft-protection/. We are also notifying customers of the enrollment landing page via email, which you will receive in your inbox this week.

As previously announced, Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment have made arrangements with Debix to offer the AllClear ID PLUS identity theft protection program to PlayStation Network and Qriocity customers who are concerned about identity theft following the criminal cyber attack on the network. 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.

anyone agree that sony needs to bring back the FAT’s? that as well as the other OS?, i’ve noticed that my ps3 FAT 60gig model has had nothing but problems ever since they had the other OS removal update, before that it ran like a champ, now it freezes so much that i’ve had to ship it to sony twice cause i have to reset the ps3 cause of the YLOD after so many resets, it’s not good for the system sony, you guys really need to fix this problem

I Purchased DC Universe on April 19 coincendiatly the same day the network went down. I just want to activate my account so I can play my game. Please, can’t the store be open or functional at least for these specific issues, I’m sure there are other games/services that require the store not necessary to purchase anything but at least reesem codes to begin services. I mean DCUO runs SOE Station not on PS Store.
Help us out with this issue, please. I really want to pay a monthly service to play.

I have been patient………….but I’ve had enough of it

I WANT THE PS STORE.

what should we wait for??

a dumb welcome back scheme offering games we already bought a year ago.

and PS+ for everyone? U won’t be offering much on it as EVERYONE will have it!

Thanks though.

Some PSN users might be pleased with your offering.

+ Saber02 on May 25th, 2011 at 6:18 pm said:

they should have had the store up after they got the network up, it’s not rocket science, it’s marketing b.s. that really just angering alot of ppl, and don’t tell me it’s more complex than mastercards network when they got hacked and back up in at least 2 weeks, or better yet, the governments sites that are no no areas, they seem to be able to get back up and running with new security pretty darn quick as well

@No0bT3r

Lol…….the map won’t come out before PS Store comes back up

If it had to it would’ve been available on PS3 when it came out for XBL users.

Like seriously…it will come out and will be available on WHAT?

+ Hank3434 on May 25th, 2011 at 6:20 pm said:

NO ONE CARES ABOUT CANADA… QUIT ASKING. When you get 300 million plus people come talk. Fact is, it isn’t a large enough market, I’d be surprised if Sony offers you guys ID protection at all. Also its only for a year, so its not even that great.

+ philphillyphill on May 25th, 2011 at 6:20 pm said:

the welcome back package is just a HUGE middle finger at all the users cause anyone who actually wants the games has already bout it. they are also making money off the ps+ because everyone will be spending money like crazy. p.s. they probably will make everything that was free for ps+ cost a couple of dollars.

sony.. RIGHT BACK AT YOU!!!!

+ Mr-Mutt on May 25th, 2011 at 6:20 pm said:

I seriously think it still would have been better to just give us all about $60 in our account. That way, we can get any games we want. Not complaining, though!

@79, Maybe the Canadian Game Studios should not care about you non-Canadians, let see how happy u would be about that. With your attitude you clearly must be American – no offensive, just saying.
