The PlayStation 4 just got a crucial security feature
Tech Insider

Two-step verification is one of the best ways to defend your online accounts, and Sony just made the feature available to anyone with a PlayStation Network account ― the one that you use to make purchases on all your PlayStation consoles.

Once you set it up, any time someone tries to sign in with your account on a PlayStation 4 for the first time, a text message with a special one-time code will be sent to your phone. That way, only the account-holder can actually log in, even if someone manages to find your password.

Here's how to set it up:

On your PlayStation 4, go to the "Settings" menu. Go to "PlayStation Network Account Management." Click "Account Information." Click "Security." Click "2-Step Verification."

And, if you haven't set up two-step verification for all your other online accounts, like Gmail, Apple, and Facebook, definitely do so as soon as possible. Stay safe out there, folks.
