Secure Your Account - 2 Step Verification

SECURE YOUR ACCOUNT NOW!

 

With 2-Step Verification (2SV)

 

What is it?

It's extra security!

 

Why you need it?

It's as simple as this, if you value your account, then use 2SV.

 

How it works

 

When you sign in on applicable device, you'll get a code texted to your mobile phone. Without the code, you (or anyone else) can't sign in.

           Sign in                    Receive Code             Enter Code

Now this bit is REALLY important

 

BACKUP CODES

 

When you set up 2SV, you get 10 backup codes

 

If you can't receive a code for some reason, you can use a back up code instead

 

When they are generated... Make a note of them straight away.

 

Not later, or in a bit, or tomorrow .. Do it

These are your lifeline if you lose your mobile, the dog eats it etc

 

To find them on your PS4

 

Go to [Settings] > [Account Management] > [Account Information] > [Security] > [Two-Step Verification] > [Backup Codes]

 

Or on PC/ web browser go to Account management via https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/login.action?service-entity=psn

and you'll see a link for 2SV,

This takes you to another page where you can click on "backup codes" to view them.

 

There's even an option to print so

 

Ready to set it up?

Then head here on PC/Mac/Mobile browser

 or

You can set it up straight from your PS4:

 

1. Go to [Settings] > [Account Management] > [Account Information] > [Security] > [2-Step Verification] > [Set Up Now].

2. Carefully enter your mobile number and select [Add].

3. You will receive a verification code by text — enter the code into the PS4 verification section to authorise your mobile number.

4. Select [Activate] to switch on 2SV.

 

 

CONCLUSION

 

                                     do it now.jpg

LOL

 

Utterly Brilliant Gina...   Well Done...

 

 

I've mentioned this before, but, This 2 Step Verification Service should be made with an Opt Out Clause instead of an Opt In Clause..

 

 

 

Guys...

If you don't have a Handy Phone, your normal handset in the House can receive a text also if it has a Screen.   

 

2 Step Verification is not a Service just for Smart Phones.

No.

a) It has ZERO to do with the topic of this thread.

b) This isn't customer support.

 

All anyone here can tell you is check your junk/spam email and make sure you typed the correct email address in, or contact customer support.
