How to set up a family account on PlayStation 5

The newly released PlayStation 5 allows users to set up a family account for kids or other family members. These accounts can restrict playtime and prevent users from making in-game purchases and can be extremely useful at times.

Read on to find out how you can set up a PlayStation 5 account for your kids.

Setting up a family/sub account on PS5

Before you add a family account to your PS5, make sure you have a main account registered in it.

Once you log in to the primary account on your PS5, go to Settings > Family and Parental Controls.

From there, you can go to Family Management and click on ‘Add Family Member’.

Once done, you’ll be prompted to scan a QR Code on your phone to set up the family account on your PlayStation 5.

After you sign in to your account on your phone, you’ll be given the option to add a child account. Enter the child’s date of birth and then you can proceed to verify your identity as an adult. You will then be charged 50 cents which get added to your digital wallet.

Family Account features

As an adult creating the child account, you get access to the following features:

  • Manage playtime.
  • Manage purchases.
  • Manage access to games, videos, and applications.
  • Disable text, video, and voice chat messages.
  • Block user-generated video, streams, and pictures.
  • Appoint other adults in the family as “guardians”. This allows them to set and change controls on all the child family members (including how much can be spent from your wallet).
