Essential PS4 set up guide – tips & tricks for your PlayStation 4


Log in to PS4 with your Face

Where: Settings/Login Settings

You’ll need a PlayStation 4 camera for this but it’s worth setting up if you have one as this is only one of the neat things you can do with it. It’s exceptionally handy if you have several people using the PS4 with different logins, as all they need to do to access their account is sit in front of the camera and let it recognise them. You’ll have to switch it on in the Login Settings found in Settings where you can also find the Face Recognition Management option to help you set it all up. You can also go into Settings/Devices to find the Camera options and re-adjust the room depth for better recognition.
