Some EU PSN Accounts Issued With A Mandatory Password Reset

November 21, 2013

I was just about to go to bed when i seen this in my news feed:

Sony has issued a mass mandatory password reset on the European PlayStation Network, although there has been no security compromise.

The source is VG24/7

When i looked at the source of the story in which the site was talking about, i read a thread from a Online Support Coordinator on the EU PlayStation Forums, which said this:

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.



At the moment of me posting this, i was able to sign into my EU account fine.
