Learn how to switch your PlayStation™Network (PSN) online status as it appears to friends and other users.
Online status lets you know the availability of a player. You can tell what a player's online status is by checking the icon on their profile or your friend list.
You can choose from the following online statuses:
|Online||If you don't change your status, you appear as online when you're signed in.|
|Busy||Use this status when you want to focus on your game or you're stepping away from your console for a while. This status can't be chosen on PS4™ consoles.|
|Appear Offline||Use this status if you don't want your friends or other players to see you as online.|
You can configure settings for who can see your online status by following the guide below.
