How to share games on PS4
With this guide you will learn how to share games on PS4. In a nutshell, this will allow you and someone else to connect your downloaded game collections and access them with fewer restrictions. For this process you will only need the account information PS4 of your friend, in addition to yours.
1. First sign in to your PlayStation Network account on a friend’s console.
two. Choose the tab Settings in the main menu.
3. Choose Account management.
Four. Choose Activate as your primary PS4.
5. Choose Activate.
You will now have access to all your games on your friend’s console. They will still need to be downloaded, but there is no need to log back into your account on that PlayStation. If you are exchanging access to your digital game collections, your friend or family member will also need to follow steps 1-4 on your PS4.
Warnings and precautions
Please note that if you need to make major changes to your account or user settings (for example, if you get a PlayStation 4 Pro) you will have to repeat the process. If the person you shared your account with is someone you trust (and we highly recommend only sharing accounts with family or close friends), that person will need to deactivate that device as the primary system for your account before you can set up your console. You can then repeat the process to share the games again.
You can also disable a console remotely using the account management tool in your browser. However, you can only do this once every six months. Keep in mind that if you don’t have access to your primary console, other users who sign in to your PlayStation 4 won’t have access to your digital games.
You can share your account with as many people as you want, but you can only do this process, which allows you to play the same game on two consoles simultaneously, with one person. If you try to connect three friends, for example, and all four of them want to play a game together, your account will be banned.
