To prevent this annoying situation, PlayStation 4 offers secure login by adding a pass-code to your login, to protect your own game data. Here is what you need to do:
- 1Go to your PlayStation 4 and login with your own User ID.
- 2Once logged in, just go to "Settings."
- 3Go to "Login Settings".
- 4Select the last option for "Pass-Code Management", then select buttons to login.

- R1 for number 5.
- R2 for number 6.
- L1 for number 7.
- L2 for number 8.
