How to Delete a User from PS5


Adding a user to your PlayStation 5 makes it easy for that user to log into their account, and keeps their saved files and screenshots separate from yours. However, if there’s someone you added who you no longer want to have access to your console, you can easily remove them from your PS5. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in the YouTube video below.
