Sony is urging users of its PSN service to use two-step verification after receiving user reports of account hacking. Several users have submitted questions through the official Japanese PlayStation support Twitter account. Due to the high volume of inquiries, the company is now urging users to take every precaution to protect their accounts in the future. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
Earlier, Sony released a video tutorial showing how to set up two-step verification to prevent hacking or get better security for their PSN accounts. The video explains step by step how to set up this precaution. You can check it out below.
Although the problem is related to PSN accounts, there is no indication that any of Sony’s official accounts have been hacked. This includes any hacking attempts or any information breach through the service.
In July 2021, Sony asked users to check their shopping cart when purchasing PlayStation Plus. Users had suddenly sent inquiries to the company due to errors during the checkout process. Users bought PlayStation Now instead of PlayStation Plus.
In addition, the subscription fee for PlayStation Plus has risen to an all-time high. This was apparent from a financial report, which showed a sharp increase in subscriptions in the past financial year.
