Two-step verification

Help protect your account on PlayStation Network with an extra layer of security.

Safety first

Keep your account as secure as possible

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, it could become compromised if you click on malicious links, use the same password for multiple services, or if your password becomes known to someone else.

By activating two-step verification, a second layer of security will be added to your account.

*Feature supported on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles.

How it works

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.
