Privacy and security are more important than ever in the digital age. It's too easy for our information — especially our passwords — to fall into the wrong hands. If you feel as if your PlayStation Network account may be compromised or you just want to change your password every now and then for some added peace of mind, it's quick and easy to do so from both your console and on desktop.
How to change your PSN password on PlayStation 4
- Go to Settings.
Select Account Management.
- Select Account Information.
- Select Password.
Enter your current password and new password you'd like as prompted.
- Hit Confirm.
How to change your PSN password on desktop

Still worried about your account security?
If changing your password isn't enough for you, you can always set up two-factor authentication. This provides an additional layer of security by sending a code to your cellphone every time you log in, so you can prove that it's you logging in and not someone else.
