Create new PlayStation account
This article will show you how to create a new PSN master account, or link an existing PSN account to your PS4.
Link your existing PSN account
If you already have a PSN account, you do not need to create a new one. In fact, it is preferable to keep all of your PlayStation products on the same account. That way, all of your PSN services (such as PS Plus, Trophies, Friends, etc.) can be shared amongst all of your PlayStation systems.
To link an existing account:
- From the PSN sign in screen, enter your existing PSN Sign ID and Password.
- Note: If you see a message that states that the email is already associated with a Sony group, go to and sign in to link the account to the Sony Entertainment Network.
- Read the Terms of Service and if you agree, select [Accept] to proceed.
- If this is your first time signing in to PSN from a PS4, you will have asked to add some additional settings. Select [Next] and press the X button.
- Your existing PSN Avatar, along with the First and Last name we have on file will be displayed. Feel free to change them if you wish, otherwise select [Next] and press the X button.
- Use the checkboxes to choose whether or not to display your true name and Facebook profile picture instead of your Avatar and Online ID in games and/or to friends of your friends. Then, select [Next] and press the X button.
- Follow the onscreen instructions for setting up the additional privacy settings for "Who can see my friends", and "Who can see my activities".
- Confirm your City, State, and Zip Code. Then select [Next] and press the X button.
- If you wish, link your Facebook account to your PSN account. This will allow you to post stories, share videos and screenshots through these services. Choose [Next] to link these services, or choose [Skip] to continue without linking (you can always link account later).
- Select PS Plus Membership to purchase, or select[Redeem Codes] if you have a PS Plus code, or select [Skip] to proceed.
- Select [OK] to acknowledge that when you log in to your PS4 with this user profile, you will also be signed into the PSN.
