Okay, so they're catching up.
Though it has been available for Xbox Live account creation since 2013, Sony will finally bring two-factor authentication to the PlayStation Network.
"In order to further safeguard our users and their accounts, we are preparing to offer a two-step verification feature."
We don't yet know when this extra security measure will arrive; the Sony representative just said more details will arrive "at a later date." If you're not familiar, two-step verification requires prospective users to submit two different forms of verification before gaining access to their account. It takes a little longer but obviously, it's more secure than just one password.
Well, anything Sony can do to improve security is probably a good thing. They'll never live down the infamous 2011 PSN hack.
