Signing in to PlayStation Network gives you control over all of the online services on your PlayStation console* and via our websites – including PlayStation Store and topping up your wallet.
It’s important to keep your password as secure as possible so that your account doesn’t become compromised – for example, by clicking on malicious links, if you use the same password for multiple services, or if your password becomes known to someone else.
By activating 2-Step Verification, we’ll add a second layer of security to your account.* Feature supported on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles.
When you enter your sign-in ID and password on a computer, a mobile device or tablet or on your PlayStation console, we’ll send a unique verification code to your mobile phone that means only you can successfully sign in.
Make your account stronger by adding an extra layer of security and requiring your password along with your verification code.
