Does anyone know how to recover a forgotten password?

When you signed in you should have had to enter an email address. Chances are you still have the information there in an email. You also may have to just go to the account settings manager to request your information be sent.

What system are you asking about ? If it's the PS3 I think you go into system settings and reset system to default settings which then your password is all zero's 0000.

No it just resets your system to default settings, only formatting your HD would remove games saves.

I need to recover my account password, not my control password. I went into account management and didnt see anywhere about a request info thing.

Go to www.us.playstation.com and click on support. Call them and tell them and they'll send you a new temporary password to your E-mail associated with it and then you can go into account management afterwards and change it to whatever you like.

Ask your biological father, assuming you know who he is.

does that work if u do 0000 for the password ?

lol look at all the one post accounts who revive the dead topic. But hey atleast you searched and 0000 only works unless you changed it, also this is only for the 4 digit password on the system itself for changing parental settings and stuff.

Call sony and tell them and give them the e-mail you used and they'll give you a temporary new one.
