Australian PSN users offered identity protection

American and European schemes extended to Australian gamers

PSN users in Australia have begun receiving invites to a protection identity scheme from Sony. Such schemes are already in place in the USA and Europe.

According the VG247, users are over 18 and who signed up to PSN before the hack in April have been offered a year's subscription to the Identity Theft Protection Programme.

"We have teamed up with CSIdentity, a leading provider of global identity protection and fraud detection services to bring you peace of mind when using PlayStation Network and related services such as PlayStation Store," read the email.

CSIdentity is an identity protection firm based in Austin, Texas and is offering CyberAgent internet surveillance and identity restoration.

Eligible users have 60 days to register for the service.
