So the master ( Primary ) account has a Playstation Plus membership with 11 months left to go before expiration.

Why isn't my local profile on the same Playstation 4 system getting any multiplayer benefits if no settings have been changed? I've been playing for 2 weeks and suddenly it doesn't work.

Any help would be lovely.

  • By "multiplayer benefits" I'm assuming you mean you can't play online games? Commented Dec 11, 2015 at 14:46

    Do you mean primary account as the main account used, or first account used? Or has the console actually been set as the primary console for that account?

For any secondary (i.e. non PS+) accounts to benefit, the PS+ account must of set this system as the primary system.

This is achieved via the instructions on the playstation site
