PSN: Many EU Accounts Passwords Reset Due To ‘Precautionary Measures’

November 22, 2013

It seems that some of the European Playstation Network accounts have been re-set, so if you can’t log in, don’t worry!

Sony has reset many European PSN accounts, but not all. Many PSN users have said they were experiencing problems when signing in, I’ve even seen someone on n4g claiming that their PSN accounts won’t work on PS4!

A post was put on the PS forums by someone saying they were having problems, an ‘Online Support Coordinator’ answered this by saying:

We monitor PSN account for any irregular activity. If such activity is detected we will sometimes reset passwords.

This was done purely as precautionary measure and there was no specific evidence that any accounts had be compromised.

Only a small number of users were affected by this and as I said this was precautionary so there is nothing specific to worry about.

I cant provide any further details as this would affect out ability to keep you guys safe.

If anyone has any concerns about there PSN account drop me a PM or give PlayStation Support a call.

You should also contact Support if you are unable to reset your password for any reason.


So no need to worry guys, no accounts were compromised, just a basic re-set to be on the safe side :)

Was your account password re-set? Mine wasn’t, but I’m pretty sure it’s a good idea to tell people if you’re going to do something like this.
