Kinda off topic.

13 replies 199 views Edited Jan 27, 2014

Ok, I have asked this question on other forums but they tell me the samething. When I turn my PS4 off, why does it not log me off PSN? I have to manually do it everytime. I even tried deactivating it as my primary console, but it makes me manually log out everytime. At first I thought it was just a new feature that you have to manually sign out but on other forums they are telling me that if you turn your ps4 off it logs you out. Please help me with my problem... Why is it not logging me out when i turn it off and making me manually do it? It bothers me and I don't know why. Thanks in advance!

I don't think I've heard of this one before. How is it that you're aware that you haven't logged off?
I would just call Sony on this issue.

Because it auto logs you in when you turn it on.

 

It will NEVER prompt you to log in when turning on.

Why does it auto log me in? I have that setting turned off. When I turn my PS4 off then turn it back on it is still signed in. The only time it isnt signed in when I turn it on is when I manually sign out. Do I have to manually sign out everytime? People told me if signs you out when you just turn it off, you don't have to manually do it everytime.

It does "sign you out" when you turn it off, but as soon as you turn it on, it signs you in again.

 

Think of it like this:

I use Facebook, right? So when I'm on my computer, it says I'm online.

 

When I turn off my computer, I will appear "offline" to everyone else.

 

And then when I turn on my computer again and open Facebook, it automatically puts me back in "online" status.

 

 

This is how PSN works as well. AFAIK, there is no setting (like the PS3 has) where you have to go to PSN and sign in each time you turn on the console.

 

But just so you know: If your PS4 is OFF, then you will appear OFFLINE. You are NOT logged into PSN when your PS4 is off.

To stop the PS4 auto login as a user on Each boot up disable auto login...

It will then allow Other users login as a choice at Start up...

I am confused right now. Ok,  is there  a way where I can have it where I can sign in everytime I turn the PS4 on? The only time it does it for me is when I sign out manually. When I don't press "Sign out" and just turn the ps4 off, It dont make me sign in, it already has me signed in. Sorry if im confusing everyone, but im confused myself.
