The recent spate of hack attacks on Sony’s PSN network, and those of its other subsidiaries has got them working on their security attacks, very fiercely.
Free protection, now…
Sony now states that it is going to offer all its users identity theft protection software for free. The offer is available for only those users who had an active account as of April 20, 2011. The service dubbed as ‘AllClear ID Plus’ is open to PlayStation Network and Qriocity account holders across United States. The service offered by Austin, Texas-based Debix, however, has a time limit. As previously mentioned, this offer is being made available to only those who had active accounts as of April 20, 2011.
As also the offer will be on only till the day end of June 28, 2011 (Central Standard Time). Availing this offer is not a compulsion for the account holders. But, if you’re among those who plan to avail the same, you’ll have to use the same e-mail address that you entered to register yourself on PSN or Qriocity.
