After credit card and personal account information were stolen by hackers, customers who are using the online gaming and video streaming service are becoming concerned and don’t want to fall prey to schemes using their personal details. The free program will help them fight identity theft.
Sony said customers have until June 18 to sign up for 12 months of free protection provided by Debix Inc.’s AllClear ID Plus identity theft program. The service will check for suspicious activity using personal information and will notify customers monthly.
In case measures to fight identity theft fails to prevent a crime, a customer can receive $1 million as compensation from Sony.
The PlayStation Network connects gamers around the world to play and also allows users to stream movies and music. It was shut down April 20 after the company confirmed the hacking.
Aside from services to fight identity theft, Sony is offering complimentary downloads and free 30-day subscription to its PSN premium service.
