PlayStation Accounts Now Have 2-Step Verification


Reaction score
Sony has enabled 2-Step verification for PlayStation Network accounts, introducing an increased layer of security when trying to login.

"Passwords can be compromised if you use the same password for multiple accounts, click on malicious links, open phishing emails and other methods," Sony says on the PlayStation website.

"If your password is compromised and becomes known to someone other than yourself, your account will still require a verification code to gain access when you activate 2-Step Verification."

With 2-Step Verification enabled, a text message will be sent to a linked mobile phone number when you enter your password. The code sent in this text needs to be used to gain access to the account.

"By requiring two forms of identification for sign-in, your account and personal information will be better protected," Sony added.

You can activate 2-Step Verification here.
