I must have set up my account when I was 17 because my DOB is a year off. I'd like to have it right in case I need to recover my password/account. What's the easiest way? I couldn't find it anywhere in the PSN account settings online.

  • Pretty sure you'd have to contact Playstation Support directly

    You said 'I must have set it up when I was 17 because my DOB is a year off'. That implies that when you were 17 your DOB was different to what it is now :P

    Oh, I see what he means. He set it to 18 when he was 17.

Short answer: you can't. At least, not with your account settings. Sony uses your DOB when you want to retrieve your password, and a few other things.

You may try to contact Sony, or at least the PSN department, but I would be surprised if they did.

  • Sony actually can't, even if you contact them. I was on with support once (forgot my password and used a fake DOB). They reset my password and I asked if they could also change my DOB to my correct one and was told they can't do that. Aug 20, 2015 at 19:00
