Random spam bot messages on PSN

7 replies

anyone else getting these ridiculous spam bot messenger things? It's really annoying. I'm new to PSN, is there a privacy feature I'm missing like messages from friends only? Which even if so that would be a little annoying, sometimes random Overwatch, etc conversation can be fun.

  • If its the message i'm thinking it is then yeah i've gotten 2 of the same message by diffrent accounts is definatley a spam bot.

  • I haven't had a problem with this in the ten years or so I've been playing Playstation but I got one a few days back and two more the next day.  It's just happened recently for me.

    BTW, was it someone claiming to be a 22-year-old girl who wanted you to come watch her free webcam show?  That seems to be a popular one.

  • Report the messages. Our reports will help Programmers to work on blocking such messages. And we have the option to choose to change our settings to friends only, if we wish.

  • Yeah, same thing happened to me. For the first time ever on any platform I've played on haha. Seems to be a big issue on Xbox Live too.
