Some PSN passwords reset following “irregular activity”.
Some readers with European PSN accounts may have had their PlayStation Network password reset earlier this week. Well, it seems that the same thing is happening now with North American accounts.
On the official PlayStation forum, Sony put up a notice stating that some users may be required to reset their PlayStation Network passwords due to “irregular activity”. A Sony rep went on to state, “Note that if you have access to the email address and Date of Birth associated with the account, you will be able to reset it yourself. If you are missing one or both of those, then you will need to contact us for further assistance.”
Though this seems to only affect a small number of PSN users, you may want to reset your password just to be one hundred percent safe.
Our pals at Kotaku contacted Sony, and a rep replied, “We routinely monitor for irregular activity, and if such activity is detected, we may sometimes reset passwords of affected SEN accounts as a precautionary measure to protect consumers and their account information.”
Will you be resetting your pass as a precautionary measure, or will you take the gamble that you aren’t one of the supposedly few affected?
