Sony Extends Identity Theft Protection Offer For PlayStation Network Users Through july

To help calm the nerves of users whose personal information was swiped during the PlayStation Network outage, Sony offered a year of free identity theft protection through Debix’s AllClear ID PLUS program. The deadline to register was set to expire June 28, but Sony has extended it through the end of the day July 31.

Those who had PSN accounts before April 20 are eligible. If you want to sign up, visit this site.

If you’re on the PSN, does the identity theft offer soften the blow of the data breach?
