After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Sony Offers Free Identity Theft Protection To PSN Users

Posted on Friday, May 6 @ 00:22:01 PST by

Ew, gross. I stepped in dog shit today. Nasty, nasty stuff. New shoes too! What the F***! Gosh, I can't believe it happened to me. Shit! I stepped in shit! God, if I find the dirty sonofabitch who did this... I wish I could do the same thing right back to them... maybe rub their faces in it.

"I caught you! You bastard!" That's what I would say. You know... if I ever got my identity stolen I'd probably feel the same way.

Since the PlayStation Network's breach and the subsequent theft of user information, the possibility of identity fraud went way up for a lot of gamers. Sony detailed plans to offer identity theft protection to PSN users in the United States today. Plans for individuals in international PSN territories have not been described but that information should be available soon.

Thinking about enrolling in the complimentary service? Here's the run down:
  • Cyber monitoring and surveillance of the Internet to detect exporsure of an AllClear ID Plus customer's personal information, including monitoring of criminal web sites and date recovered by law enforcement. If his/her personal information is found, the customer will be alerted by phone and/or email and will be provided advice and support regarding protective steps to take. The customer will also receive monthly identity status reports. Debix works with an alliance of cyber-crime experts from the government, academia and industry to provide these services.
  • Priority access to licensed investigators and identity restoration specialists. If an AllClear ID Plus customer receives an alert, or otherwise suspects that he/she may be the victim of identity theft, the customer can speak directly, on a priority basis, with an on-staff licensed private investigator, who will conduct a comprehensive inquiry. In the case of an identity theft, the customer can work with an identity restoration specialist to contact creditors and others, and take necessary steps to restore the customer’s identity.
  • A $1 million identity theft insurance policy per user to provide additional protection in the event that an AllClear ID Plus customer becomes a victim of identity theft. This insurance would provide financial relief of up to $1 million for covered identity restoration costs, legal defense expenses, and lost wages that occur within 12 months after the stolen identity event.
