How do you get a Sony account?

If you do not have an account for any of the participating Sony Group services, just sign- up at any of these services to create your Sony account.

 

Your existing account can be upgraded to a Sony account

If you already have an account for PlayStation Network, it is your Sony account. For other participating Sony Group services, you may already have a Sony account or may have already upgraded to a Sony account. Simply follow the prompts when you sign-in to the Sony Group service.

If you already have a Sony Rewards account and do not have an account with the other participating Sony Group services listed above then your Sony Rewards account will become your Sony account.

 

How do I earn points with Sony Rewards for my activity on the PlayStation™ Network?

When you sign-in to Sony Rewards, if you already have an account for PlayStation Network, you will be asked to link your two accounts. Once this is done you can begin earning points for your PlayStation Network activity within the Sony Rewards program.

 

How do you use your Sony account to access other participating Sony Group services?

If you already have a Sony account, sign-in to any participating Sony Group service with the sign-in ID and password for your Sony account. The first time you sign-in for each Sony Group service, you will need to accept the privacy policy for the specific service.

The core account information of your existing Sony account is shared with the Sony Group service you’re signing into and you do not need to enter these again.

 

What if I’m an existing Sony Rewards member with an account linked to PlayStation™ Network, but the email addresses for both accounts are different?

When you sign-in to Sony Rewards, enter your existing Sony Rewards email address. You will be notified that you are linked to a Sony account for PlayStation Network with a different email address.

You will then be prompted to enter the email address of your Sony account for PlayStation Network. Then you will be prompted to enter the password you use to sign-in to PlayStation Network. After a successful sign-in using your PlayStation Network credentials, these credentials will be used moving forward for your Sony account to access both Sony Rewards and the PlayStation Network.

 

Which Sony Company controls your Sony account?

The Sony Group service you are accessing will continue to control your account for that service (and any data collected when you use that service) in accordance with its privacy policy. If you wish to exercise any privacy rights you may have in relation to a particular Sony Group service, you should contact the specific Sony Group service responsible – see the service’s privacy policy for contact details.

The Sony Rewards privacy policy can be accessed here: http://rewards.sony.com/privacy.html

How do you close your Sony account?

If you wish to close your Sony account, you need to go to each service’s website or contact each service you signed up for and follow the instructions to dissociate your account from that service. Only after the last service is dissociated, your Sony account will be closed.
