PlayStation Network And Qriocity Users Have To Pay To Not Have Their Identities Stolen
Maybe it’s just me, but I think Sony should’ve been protecting its users’ information throughout this whole fiasco. Now that it’s too late, they’re offering a paid service (provided by AllClear ID) that protects you from identity theft. Does anyone else see a problem with that? We shouldn’t have to pay to not have our information stolen. But hey, it’s free for the first year, so if you’re worried, you might as well sign up.
Here’s the email Sony is sending to PlayStation Network and Qriocity users:
Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment have made arrangements with Debix to offer AllClear ID PLUS to eligible PlayStation®Network and Qriocity account holders in the United States who are concerned about identity theft.
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.
If interested, please submit your email address by June 28, 2011, at 11:59:59 PM CST at:us.playstation.com/news/
Please note, you must enter the same email address used to register your PlayStation®Network or Qriocity account. Once your email address is validated, you will be sent your AllClear ID PLUS activation code.
