“AllClear ID Plus” Identity Theft Protection Offer Extended Through July 31st

Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on Jul 08, 2011 // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

A friendly reminder to all eligible PlayStation Network and Qriocity account holders, Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment International have made arrangements with Debix, Inc., one of the industry’s most reputable identity protection firms, to offer AllClear ID Plus at no cost for 12 months from the time an account holder registers for the program.

This AllClear ID Plus Identity Theft Protection offer in the United States has been extended through July 31, 2011.

The details of the program include, but are not limited to:

  • Cyber monitoring and surveillance of the Internet to detect exposure of an AllClear ID Plus customer’s personal information, including monitoring of criminal web sites and data recovered by law enforcement. If his/her personal information is found, the customer will be alerted by phone and/or email and will be provided advice and support regarding protective steps to take. The customer will also receive monthly identity status reports. Debix works with an alliance of cyber-crime experts from the government, academia and industry to provide these services.
  • Priority access to licensed private investigators and identity restoration specialists. If an AllClear ID Plus customer receives an alert, or otherwise suspects that he/she may be the victim of identity theft, the customer can speak directly, on a priority basis, with an on-staff licensed private investigator, who will conduct a comprehensive inquiry. In the case of an identity theft, the customer can work with an identity restoration specialist to contact creditors and others, and take necessary steps to restore the customer’s identity.
  • A $1 million identity theft insurance policy per user to provide additional protection in the event that an AllClear ID Plus customer becomes a victim of identity theft. This insurance would provide financial relief of up to $1 million for covered identity restoration costs, legal defense expenses, and lost wages that occur within 12 months after the stolen identity event.

Please go to http://us.playstation.com/news/consumeralerts/identity-theft-protection/ and enter your email address to get started. We will announce our plans for ID protection for Canada and Latin America soon.

@sizzixx3994 you have no idea what you are talking about. I as well as millions and millions of PSP owners still use UMD. Sony is not Microrosoft. They don’t abandon their customers for new ones. They made new pox and ps2 games well into next Gen. Some people seem to lack common sense.

@swollen-redtip. Go away troll. There are no viruses on the PS3 and Sony would never tell you to find out for them. You’re just a Xbot troll fishing.

DDetroit is right, I’ve been awaiting an email from AllClear for about a week. They say they’re supposed to send an activation code in “72 Hours”. I, too, have entered my email twice. NOTHING. Is this their way to limit the free sign ups, by letting the clock run past 11:59 tonight? A$$HOLES!
