Sony has decided to extended its offer of free identity theft protection for PlayStation Network users in North America. The company announced that it is extending the AllClear ID Plus Identity Theft Protection program at no cost until the end of July. This protection will expire approximately one year after the user has registered for the program.
Apparently some users have been slow to sign up for it, or Sony is simply extending the program opt-in out of courtesy to its PSN users. The company offered the plan after the PlayStation Network came back online – two and half months after hackers breached security and forced the company to take its services down to make them more secure.
Sony is expected to announce AllClear ID Plus protection for users in Canada and Latin America sometime soon.
