You have to take online security seriously these days and two-factor authentication is a good way to reduce the odds that your account will be hacked. Since most PlayStation Network members have their credit cards on file, we don’t want our accounts compromised. After all, it has happened before.

Well, it’s a good thing that Sony has finally enabled two-factor authentication for PlayStation Network accounts. That should make you rest easier while buying and playing your favorite games.

It is an additional layer of protection for PSN accounts that should go a long way towards keeping users safe. And it is about time too. You might remember that the PlayStation Network was compromised by a huge hack that leaked a lot of personal details on more than 77 million PlayStation Network members. That was five years ago. Five years! Microsoft has had two-factor authentication since three years ago. Well, at least it is here now.
