You often come across situations when you could no longer access your PSN account due to forgotten E-mail or PSN Password. No need to fright as Playstation 4 offers several ways of recovering it without needing much effort.
To recover your PSN Account, Playstation 4 system provides you with three different scenarios based on your situation:
