New User Creation and Guest Login

Web Filter

Make use of a web filtering service that verifies the type and safety of sites when the Internet Browser is being used, and automatically prevents dangerous or harmful sites from being displayed.

You can set parental controls for individual users. For details, see "About restrictions".

Temporarily Disable PS4 System Restrictions

Select the checkbox to temporarily disable all parental control restrictions for all users, without having to sign in to PlayStation™Network. The restrictions are restored when you clear the checkbox, turn off your system, or put your system in rest mode.

Change System Restriction Passcode

If you forget your system restriction passcode, you must initialize the PS4™ system. Be careful with your passcode. Don't forget it, and make sure others don’t obtain it.
