Reset PSN Password Without Date Of Birth

    21

    I recently ran into a really annoying issue where I had registered for a PSN account and provided a fake Date of Birth (DOB). I have also gone and forgot the password for the account. Part of the password reset process involves having to provide your date of birth. Since the DOB provided was not real, I cant remember what it is and as a result, am unable to reset the password. The support team will be quite unhelpful with this as providing false information is against the TOS. I have found a very helpful guide on Youtube that explains how you can reset the password without having to provide your date of birth. Here is how to reset PSN password without date of birth.

    Reset PSN Password Without Date Of Birth

    Working as of 4/4/2016

    1. Trigger a password reset using the standard password reset form on the PlayStation website or through any games console. This will send an email to your account.
    2. In the email you got from sony, you will see a URL variable called token. It will look something like “&token=…”. Copy and paste this token and save it into a text file.
    3. Take the token that you received from Sony in the email and insert it into this link in place of the token value.

      https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/security/validate-password-reset-token!input.action?token=*YOUR TOKEN HERE*&request_locale=en_GB&service-entity=psn

    4. Copy this URL and enter it into your web browsers URL bar and click enter. This will bring you to a form where you can reset your password without needing to know your date of birth.

     

    I have tested this myself today and it worked perfectly. Here is the video guide that will help you out if you are stuck.

    3. My email for my PSN account is fake and can’t receive the email . And I don’t know the DOB and my password.. I’m really desperate spent a lot of money on that account

      • If you look at this from Sonys perspective. Someone needs access to an account with an email, DOB and password that they dont know. It will be very difficult for them to believe this is a genuine request. Its also worth mentioning that its against the terms of service to provide false information like you have, so they might not be too sympathetic to the cause either. Phoning support is your only option. If you have a credit card linked to the account then you may be able to find some way to prove that the account belongs to you using a transaction authorization code for the card you used

    4. Forgot my password to my PS3 account but my email to that account is fake and I dont know the DOB either.. Can u help me plZz really desperate for my account spent a lot of money on it.

    5. God bless the person who wrote this! The method is easy and 100% working. You people may have problems if you don’t know what the token is. It’s the long string of numbers.
