SOE partners with Affinion to offer identity protection for EU players


European players who were waiting to hear how Sony Online Entertainment is going to safeguard their identities as it did for U.S. residents can now rest easy. SOE has announced a partnership with Affinion International to offer a 12-month protection program for customers' identities.

This program will provide a number of services to safeguard the compromised identities of Sony players affected by the recent hacking intrusion. These services include monitoring, surveillance, reporting, and insurance, and they cover players in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain and Italy.

If you qualify and want to take advantage of this program, you'll need to sign up by July 13th. SOE says that it will release details soon about how to do just that. Affinion's PrivacyGuard program is a well-known and comprehensive service designed to shield customers from all manner of identity theft, including unauthorized credit card usage and phishing scams.
