Easily Appear Offline on PS5


How to Appear Offline on the PS5

To change your online status on the PS5, go to the home screen on the console and press the “Up Arrow” on the D-Pad of your controller. Now, press the “Right Arrow” button on the D-Pad until you reach the “Profile Icon” next to Settings.

Press “X” on the controller to open a drop-down menu and select “Online Status,” which appears below your name and the profile icon.

Under “Online Status,” pick “Appear Offline” to hide your online status. It’s worth noting that even if you enable this preference, Sony notes that some older games might override it and show your online status to your friends anyway. However, that isn’t a concern with newer games.

Select "Appear Offline" to stop telling your friends when you're online on the PS5. This option appears under "Online Status."

How to Use the PlayStation App to Appear Offline on PS5

The PlayStation App also allows you to change your online status. Open the PlayStation App on Android or iPhone and sign in to your PlayStation account. When you’ve done that successfully, go to the “Play” tab in the PlayStation App, which is located in the bottom-left corner of the screen and has a controller icon.

In the PlayStation App’s “Play” tab, select the “Gear Icon” in the top-right corner to open “Settings.”

Scroll down to the “Console Management” section in the PlayStation App settings and select “Online Status.”

Under the "Console Management" section in PlayStation App settings on your smartphone, you can select "Online Status" to change whether your friends can see if you're online.

You can now choose “Appear Offline” to hide your online status from your PlayStation Network friends.

Pick "Appear Offline" under "Online Status" in PlayStation App's settings. This will hide your online status from your PlayStation Network friends.

With your online status set to offline, you can enjoy your gaming sessions in peace.
