Did you use the "Get an IP PIN" online tool? That has been down for at least 6 weeks.
Or, you can ... decline to let me, a stranger on the Internet, egg you on to an exercise in time-wasting, and you could say "I'm probably OK and I don't care about it that much." -Nisiprius

Still down as of Jan 9, 2020
This service will be unavailable due to system maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience. If more information is available, you can find it by selecting the service from the Tools page.
The IRS FAQ (https://www.irs.gov/identity-theft-frau ... ip-pin#q15 says:
Q15: When does the IRS send IP PIN notices to taxpayers?

A15: We send the CP01A notice in early January to taxpayers eligible to receive an IP PIN.
I applied for and got one for 2018. I wonder if I am an "eligible taxpayer" or do I have to re-apply?
