PSN Extends Registration for Free ID Protection Until the End of July

The time to collect your PlayStation Network welcome-back freebies has come and gone — twice, even — but Sony has extended one component. Registration for identity-theft protection will run through July 31, the company's top spokesman said on PlayStation's official blog.

AllClear ID Plus, a service of identity protection firm Debix, Inc. is available to PSN subscribers free for a year beginning from the date of their registration. Originally, June 28 was the deadline for ID protection registration.

AllClear ID Plus is one of a package of free incentives, courtesies and gestures made to more than 77 million PlayStation Network account holders who went without the online service for 23 days in April and May, following a massive cyberattack and data breach.
