Next to the Dualshock 4 USB announcement, Sony has also just told us that 2-step verification for all Playstation Network accounts is now available. 2-step verification adds an extra layer of security to your PSN account and will use a text message to your phone to verify logins.

Users interested in 2-step verification can go to the new special page on the Playstation Network over here.

After the function has been activated, users will receive a text message on their phone. Whenever a security breach might be happening or a hack on PSN, this offers another extra layer of security. Sony also tells us that they will give users 10 extra codes for when text messasing isn’t working or you don’t have your phone with you.

Go check it out and add that extra layer of security to your account today.
