Ways To Recover PlayStation Password By Yourself

Want to recover your ? You can do this by yourself. You need to follow the steps mentioned below. Just note that PS4 has its own email address and password, like your computer and phone.

There are two general ways to tackle this task. You can do it through the console, or you can do it through a web browser.

The tables below illustrate two ways to get your PlayStation Network password reset.

Reset Your Password Through the PS4
  • Select settings by using the PS4 controller.
  • Choose Account Management
  • Sign out (if you are already signed in)
  • Click sign in
  • Press the Triangle Button using the controller, once you're directed to the sign-in screen
  • Tap on the Next button. If they ask for your sign-in ID, enter it.
  • You will receive an email on the attached account. It will have a link in it. Click on it.
  • Follow the instructions on the page you're directed to.
  • Once you've verified your identity, enter a new password.

Reset PlayStation Network Password in a Web Browser
  • Open the browser and go to "account management."
  • Don't sign in. Instead, select the "Trouble signing in?" option.
  • Select "Reset your password."
  • Enter the email address. Make sure the email that you used is a sign-in ID.
  • Wait for a few minutes, and you will receive an email.
  • Click change password. And then create a new secure password.

Both of those methods seem pretty complicated. DoNotPay has a better, faster, more convenient way.
