To successfully log out of your Genshin account on a PlayStation, you need to log out of your PSN account altogether. Otherwise, every time you load the game using the same PSN account, you will enter the Genshin account that is linked to this PSN profile. There is no method for logging out in-game.

In this article, we are going to discuss in detail how to link and log out of a Genshin account on the PlayStation. We will also discuss how to switch between different Genshin accounts on the PlayStation. We will cover the methods for both the PS4 and the PS5.

Back in 2021, miHoYo released the Cross-save function for Genshin Impact. [1] This feature allows you to share and save your in-game progress across multiple platforms, including PlayStation. You can do this by accessing the game with your PSN (PlayStation Network) account and linking the same email address that you used to log into your Hoyoverse account. 

Unfortunately, once you have linked your Hoyoverse account to a PSN account, you cannot log out the same way you would on a PC. The best you can do is sing out from your PSN account altogether, the same account that you used to enter the game. This way nobody will be able to access the game on your PS without knowing details about your PSN information.

Here is how you can log out of your PSN network on the PS4:

  • Turn on your PlayStation
  • Go to settings
  • Go to “Account Management”
  • Click on “Sign Out”.

Afterward, you will be out of your PSN account, which will automatically take you out of the game on the PS.

  • Navigate to “Users and Accounts”
  • Go to “Others”
  • Select the option that says “Sign Out”

This will take you out of your current PSN account and your Genshin account at the same time.

How to Link a Genshin Account on PS4/PS5?

To successfully upload your Genshin account to your PS4, you need to use a PSN account that has never logged into the game before. If it has, even by accident, then this PSN account will get linked to a new Hoyoverse or Genshin account automatically. 

So, you only get one shot to make this work. So, follow the steps carefully. The steps are identical for PS4 and PS5.

  • Open your PS4/PS5.
  • Open Genshin Impact. Remember, this should be the first time you use this PSN account to log into the game.
  • Next, follow the steps mentioned in the resulting pop-up window to link your current PSN account with the same email address that you used to create your original Genshin account. This will upload all of your progress in the game onto your PlayStation.

How to Switch Genshin Accounts on PS4?

You can only link a PSN account to one Hoyoverse account at a time. If your current PSN account is already linked to a Genshin account, then you would need to switch to a different PSN account to access a different Genshi account. You cannot switch between Genshin accounts using the same PSN profile.

So, in order to switch between multiple Genshin accounts, you first have to switch your PSN account. Here is how you can accomplish that on the PS4:

  • Open your PS4
  • Press and hold the PS button on the PS4 controller. The Quick Menu will pop up.
  • Navigate to “Power”.
  • Then select “Switch User” with the X button. You will be loaded onto a different screen containing other user accounts.
  • If the account you want to switch to is already registered, you can simply select it. If not, you can select “Add user” to register a new PSN account.
  • Once you have changed the account, you can load Genshin Impact on the PS4. If this account is linked with an existing Hoyoverse account, then that is the account you will access when you load the game. If the account does not have a Genshin profile linked, then you can follow the linking process mentioned before.

How to Switch Genshin Accounts on PS5?

Switching between PSN accounts is different in the PS5 compared to the PS4. [2] But it is pretty straightforward nonetheless.

  • Open your PS5.
  • Press and hold the PS button on the controller. The Quick menu will pop up, this time on the bottom of the screen.
  • Then navigate to the icon that signifies your current profile and press enter. It should be in the right-hand corner next to the icon that says “power”.
  • From the resulting menu, select “Switch User”. You will be loaded onto a different screen containing other user accounts.
  • If the account you want to switch to is already registered, you can simply select it. If not, you can select “Add user” to register a new PSN account.
  • Once you have changed the account, you can load Genshin Impact on the PS4. If this account is linked with an existing Hoyoverse account, then that is the account you will access when you load the game. If the account is not linked to a Genshin profile, then you can follow the linking process mentioned before.
