In an age where everyone seemingly has multiple email addresses for school, work, and unnecessary marketing emails, it can be pretty easy to lose track of which email you sign up to services with.
As we enter the next-gen of gaming with the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, you'll need to remember which email is connected to your PSN or Xbox account which, if you've not logged out of your games console since its release in 2013, could be long gone from your memory.
Here's how to find out which email address you connected to your PlayStation Network account.
How to find out which email is connected to your PSN account
To find out the email linked with your PlayStation account, open up your PS4 console that is logged into the account in question. Once logged in, follow these steps:
- Go to Settings.
- Select Account Management.
- Click Account Information.
- Select Change Email Address.
Once inside the Change Email Address setting, the email registered to your PSN account will appear inside the text box, which you can then go ahead and change if you so desire.
What to do if you forgot the email address and are not signed into PSN
Okay, so if you've made the jump over the PS5 after a long hiatus from the PlayStation family, you might not have any previous consoles available to find out your email on.
If you still need to find out which email is connected to your old PSN account, there is still one thing you can try.
While quite primitive, the brute force approach will see you searching through all your available email addresses for previous messages from Sony.
Inside the email will be the Online ID associated with your email address, confirming that it is linked with your account.
How to find PSN email address on PS5
If you're among the lucky bunch to have already secured a PS5 console, have logged into your account, and already forgotten your PSN email address, then here's how to find it:
- Go to Settings.
- Select Users and Accounts.
- Click on Account.
- Select Sign-In ID (Email Address).
Here, the current email address linked to your PSN account will show up, and you can also amend the linked email address if you want to change it.
