This e-mail will contain a link that will enable you to change your password. In this email, click on the link and follow the instructions to change your password. Once you have changed your password you can sign-in to your account using your new password.

The release of this update is a critical step as we work to make PlayStation Network significantly more secure. Thank you for your continued support and patience.
