What happens if I deactivate my PS4 as Primary?

When you deactivate your PS4 as the primary console for your PlayStation Network (PSN) account, several changes will occur:

  1. Game Sharing: One of the primary functions affected is game sharing. If your PS4 was set as the primary console, any user on that console could access and play the digital games and content purchased by your PSN account. Once you deactivate the PS4 as your primary console, other users on that system won’t have access to your purchased games and content anymore. They will need to use their own PSN accounts or purchase the games themselves.
  2. Online Play and Content Access: If you were using PS Plus (PlayStation Plus) for online multiplayer or accessing certain online content, such as cloud saves, these features might be affected on that specific console after deactivation. You will need to use your PSN account with an active PS Plus subscription on the console to access these features.
  3. Media Sharing and Remote Play: Some features like media sharing to other devices and remote play (playing your PS4 games on other devices like a PC or mobile device) may also be affected.
  4. Automatic Downloads: If you had set your PS4 as the primary console, automatic downloads, and updates might not occur anymore. You would need to manually start any downloads or updates for games and system software.
  5. Parental Controls: If you had set up parental controls for the primary console, those settings will no longer apply to that system after deactivation.
