Well, Thank you, and I understand the frustration. While doing this I tried again to get my 2nd account working and I still can't change the password.

If you do what I suggest, you should have it done in like 5 minutes though (As long as you know your current password). As far as how long will it be before they change it again? IDK. that's not anything we can control. It's inconvenient and a pain in the ass, but it is what it is. You can get back on if you really want to, you do need to take a few minutes to do so though.

Modern gaming, with internet, accounts, $$ involved, etc just don't mesh with the "plug in and play" way we used to play games. There are a fair amount of retro gamers here for a reason!

I just dont wanna deal with it every time  its not a once and done thing. so even if there is a woraround like you are saying its gonna be an  real pain in the ass  and ruins the fun for me.

an honestly this feels to me like someone died. I was so proud of having a complete set I met my best friend  thanks to the vita and also true him y other friend.  my best friend helped me so much without him I never got the full set. my vita collection  meant the world to me and now it feels tained  almost like its garbage if that makes sense


it just relay hurts me that the 1 thing I ever completed in my life gets ruined this way

You only have to do it once. I just clicked save password. You can even change it back to your old password (I think that's what I did) if you set it to auto login you will just go back to login into your vita every time you turn it on.

Well, I only had to do it once. I can't speak for anyone else. This has nothing to do with PS4/5 though, It's a PS3/Vita only situation.

not realy just vita and ps3 though even those are different ps3 you actualy CAN use without an psn account unlike the vita

with ps4 and ps5 I am pretty sure you need to login the same way though I am not 100% on that since I dont own  either of those systems

I don't have a PS5, but with PS4 you didn't have to do any of that. That's why Sony's website only mentions the two older systems, not the newer ones. it was a feature designed to enhance security on the older, outdated systems. It was only PS3 and vita, but you are right, you can play PS3 w/o an account.
My 2nd account can log into PS4 no problem, because you didn't have to go through these hoops.

Unfortunately, no. You can't "see" your password, and the only option it gives me is to send an email to reset...which doesn't work. Trust me, I've tried all that.
Oops, messed up the quotes.

Nah, my passwords are usually pretty random. I may use a phrase or something, but it's whatever words pop in my head at the moment...I don't use the same phrases in multiple passwords. So, lol, honestly there is no way I'll remember it. My best hope is that I wrote it down, which is likely...just gotta find it. (I changed it back in Feb) or just wait out Sony's inability to let me change my password.

I've only just updated to 3.74 after this thread was created, but I've had to go through the Device Setup Password prompt once. I've tried both physical and digital games without issue, both after immediately installing the update and after restarting the system. I've not been asked to initiate the Device Setup Password prompt since.

You're not. For now, this new log-in system appears to be a one-time prompt unless manually logging out, although that could change with any future system updates.
