Identity Theft Protection Offer for PlayStation Network and Qriocity Customers

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.

  • nice

  • Thanks sony…. Please get the playstation store up. Can you guys give us a date when it will be up?

  • Thanks Sony

  • Any update for Canadian PSN account holders? Though its great that you are offering this for free, hopefully puts some minds at ease.

      We’re developing a program for Canada now, and will announce it when details are finalized.

  • so, what about the rest of the world?

  • That’s all fine and dandy, but FIX YOUR STORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s been a month since it’s been down and I’m getting really tired of waiting.

  • Good job!! Sure I’m not gonna benefit directly seeing as I’m in Canada but hopefully you’ll extend the services here.

    Speaking of which, any update on that front?

    I know, one step at a time :)

  • Digital-Big-Boss

    I got the email before this topic :P

  • thank you.

  • WHOO writing comments before reading to be 8th. :D

  • Thanks, already sign up. Their isn’t to much of point for me to use it, I mostly buy PSN cards or use a debit card that I can get at Wal Mart.

    So any word on when the PSN Store is going to be up? About four of my friends have ask me, I’m where they get all of their Sony info (Mostly because they are to lazy to come here).

  • i want to buy stuff :(

  • FAIL 4 ME D:

  • I want the store to come back up

  • karate_chop_fuey

    i lost my data i hate sony psn(crying)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • zachary0543

    Sony is one of the smartest companies in the gaming section and xbox live is for hardcore gamers. I say if you want free gaming with a company that has got your back sony is the one for you and i think that speaks for all of us

  • thats awfully kind of you guys

  • Turloughvizlor

    This is useless without the store. So get the store up and running i think thats a no brainer for you sony but then again if you had brains this wouldn’t of happened

  • OVERDOSE665

    Ive been waiting for this my stepfather had his info stolen and it was by a guy from Peru. My money better still be on my account when the Store comes back untill then thanks SONY

  • HappyFeet_75

    What about us Canucks?? Our information was accessed as well… (Canucks… Canadians)

  • ^-^

  • Nice. The input form doesn’t allow hyphens in your email, but of course my email has one.

  • Turloughvizlor

    @23 another reason why sony is failing its faithful consumers

  • doodooshorts

    Im going to take this as a step closer to getting everything up and running. yay…………..

  • YEA THANKS ALOT….

  • What about Canada…?

  • Jimmy_Cosmos

    The sheer amount of time and effort that Sony has put into making sure hackers can get my credit card and personal info makes me really trust them! Their effort to keep the PS Store shut down for a month has been nothing short of amazing! They only way sony can reward us loyal fans is to keep the PS Store shut down for another month and make sure I can’t download any of my purchases!!

  • johanpar200912

    thanks but when is the playstation store going to be online

  • Thank you Sony, this is beyond anything I ever expected from you guys. I have had other companies tell me information has been compromised and they only told me through e mail, they did nothing else. You guys have not only protected my identity for a year but have also given away plenty of free goodies (when the store is back of course), even though I already own them all. No complaints from me though, just thanks for everybody’s hard work over at Sony and the teams brought in to fix the security problem. Again THANK YOU SONY.

    Everybody asking about the store needs to learn how to read. Sony has stated numerous times that they are shooting for full restoration of PSN (including the store) BY THE END OF THE MONTH.

  • I want the store up!

  • Yea I’d like to know if Canadians get any credit protection?

  • I see plenty of people have already asked already, but when do you think you might be able to announce a similar service for Canadian PSN users, or if you’re even able to offer a service here? It would`ve been nice to at least know if we are getting identity theft protection by now.

    I appreciate the offer of free games as compensation, but I am far more interested in free identity theft protection as it is far more meaningful to everyone who is now exposed due to the PSN server breach.

  • Gravitycat10989

    what about canada

  • But Sony you said we are safe you don’t think they have credit number so why do I need this

  • epicBlitZ_2

    yeah!!!

  • ItsJoseph22

    Haven’t we Canadians learned yet that we are always left out, and get nothin’

  • Wow man some of you people got to grow the [DELETED] up and just learn the fact that [DELETED] happends the store will be up when its up . i waiting on it too for many reasons but im not pacing infront of my PS3 go out and enjoy some life .

  • OccamsRazor97

    so what’s this about free games or 50 bucks store cash or some crap when the store comes up? anybody know anything or can shoot me a link?

  • The sign up page doesn’t allow email address with dash ‘-‘ in it. WTF?

  • FJ1100_rider

    Stop asking about the store !
    they’ve posted several times May 31 as the expected date so read some posts or replies and stop asking .
    seriously annoyed at the whining , it won’t speed it up to ask 100 times or change the response

  • joshuaindahouse9

    thank God

  • I hope when ps come’s back up escalation for black ops will be in the ps

  • My husband and I have separate accounts on the same PS3. Are we both going to get separate offers or will one cover both of us?

  • THANK U VERY MUCH SONY. I REALLY APPRECIATED IT AND PLEASE FIX PLAYSTATION STORE. I WANT TO CHECK IF THERE SOMETHING NEW.

  • Can we just have a new feature where we can change our PSN ID ? I am sure alot of other people would like to do the samething come one sony we have a blog share for a reason use it!

  • satomjdragon

    I just want to apologize, Sony, for all the a-holes who can’t appreciate that you’re doing your best to get our information secured again and to bring up the store as soon as possible. Some people are just so freakin’ selfish. Keep up the hard work Sony :) I’m willing to wait a little longer for the PSN Store to be up, but I’d love it if it’d come up sooner than later :D Thanks Sony!

  • FJ1100_rider
