Sony has begun sending out formal emails advising users of its 
PlayStation Network how to sign up for the identity theft protection 
services it said it would offer customers.

Sony also said Tuesday that the PlayStation online store would remain 
down until the end of the month.

"Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment have made 
arrangements with Debix to offer AllClear ID PLUS to eligible 
PlayStation Network and Qriocity account holders in the United States 
who are concerned about identity theft," Sony said in an email sent 
Wednesday afternoon.

The service will provide 12 months of alerts to help protect users from 
identity theft, as well as provide ID theft insurance coverage (up to $1 
million, Sony has said previously) as well as hands-on help from fraud
