Sony Opens Up Promised Identity Theft Protection To PlayStation Network Users

To make PlayStation Network and Qriocity users feel more comfortable following the network outage and data breach, Sony promised a year of identity theft protection.

On the PlayStation Blog, Sony spells out the details and opened up a portal that lets users sign up for a free year of Debix’s AllClear ID PLUS program. The offer includes $1 million of identity theft insurance coverage.

The offer is open to those who had PlayStation Network accounts before April 20.

What identity theft programs have you used, and what did you think of them? If you’re a PSN user, are you taking Sony up on this offer?
