hi tqc friends,
when I moved in with my fiance, we each brought a PS3. he sold his to an old friend and we combined our data on mine. it's been a few months and we're slowly discovering that should have wiped it clean. she was watching Netflix via his account and we weren't comfortable with this, so we changed the password. we haven't seen anything weird on the 'recently watched' list so we're assuming she's unable to get back in.

just now we were both playing Borderlands 2 on my account when it said he logged in. with him sitting right next to me, it's likely that it's this girl. this is the first time we've seen her online on his Playstation Network account. we are both pretty irritated at this and uncomfortable that she has access to an account tied to his credit card.

what's the easiest way to kick her off? if he changes his password from this PS3, will it prompt her to enter a password on her PS3?

any advice at all would be appreciated! thank you!

Why don't you try saying something to her. Maybe it's signing on automatically and she doesn't even realize it? Who knows unless you actually talk to her about it. Just ask her to stop.

Have you tried calling into their customer support and explaining the situation?

It could be she doesn't realize that she's accessing it through his personal account. Why doesn't he just talk to her about it? Also, worse case scenario, someone else has gotten his info., so stop dragging your feet on this and just talk to her.

She probably thinks that it just comes with a network account or he's not using it anymore, and doesn't think at all about it being tied to his account. It's possible her friend or roommate or kid is using it. He should just mention it to her in a not-accusatory way.

You mentioned that she is an old friend. Being a friend I assume the easiest way to kick her off is to talk to her about it, go to her house and change it all since I assume she is not doing this to take advantage of you or your partner, you know, being a friend and all.

Like... really?

thanks for assuming things about my, my partner's, and this girl's personalities, and our relationship dynamics! clearly I included eeeeverything in this post, and why I am uncomfortable with her is black and white and totally up to your judgement. truly some sound advice. thank you.

Not to mention... you never said you were uncomfortable about her. You said she was a friend. If you said you were uncomfortable of course my answer would be completely different. Stay mad tho.

yeah, you're right. didn't realize I only said I was uncomfortable with account stuff and not with her. I'm sorry for getting so defensive.

It's all good. I hope you got the account all sorted out.

You can deactivate all PS3's from your account which will unlink their PS3 (taking away access to any downloaded content), and then just reactivate your console again from the ps3 menu. You can only deactivate all PS3 accounts once every 6 months though. I had to do this when one of my associated Ps3's was stolen a few weeks ago
