how to unlink microsoft account from ps4 playstation 4 console

Despite its age, PlayStation 4 is still quite an appreciated console by everyone and it is not going anywhere for sure. Have you still been using it? Then perhaps you've been wondering how to unlink your Microsoft account from PS4. Then let's see how to do it.

This is something that can be useful if you're perhaps thinking about selling your PS4. While it is relatively easy to delete users from PS4 and delete game, unlinking an account seems to be something quite more difficult.

Let's look, then, at what might be the most effective and simple method on how to unlink your Microsoft account from PS4.

There are several ways to do so, for example through your console, but the quickest would probably be to do it through the Microsoft account page. Here's how to do it:

  • Log in to your Microsoft account page
  • Go into "Privacy" then look to "Apps & Services"
  • Click to see "Apps and services that can access your data"
  • You should be able to find the Microsoft account there

Do note though, that even after unlinking the account, Microsoft and PlayStation  accounts can only be re-linked to the original account so only do so in case you need that account to play anywhere else and you're not planning to connect back.

Does unlinking Microsoft account on PlayStation work?

Apparently, users are reporting that trying to disconnect the Microsoft account through the Playstation 4 menu is not working. Many are saying that they are getting an error saying "check Internet connection" even though it doesn't seem to have anything to do with a faulty connection.

So, the only method that seems to work at the moment is going through your Microsoft account to unlink whatever apps related to PlayStation you have there. It might not be the best way to do it, plus it requires a bit of fiddling with other devices. But at least, you can be sure that you will be able to do it.
