PSN code generators often place fake security certificates on a website to deceive users. These websites often have hundreds of reviews from supposedly satisfied customers. The site may even provide screenshots showing that the codes are real. However, the screenshots are either from players using actual PSN prepaid cards or are not genuine.

When a user clicks on the button that promises a free code, he is redirected to a website that demands sharing the code generator on a social media platform or inviting a certain number of friends to continue. After doing so, the user has to complete a survey, which then demands the user's personal information and phone number. The supposed PSN code generators often write sales contracts in small letters on such pages. As a result, providing personal information subscribes the user to a premium SMS service, which then charges the user every month.

Even if the user provides all the information and subscribes to the SMS service, he does not receive a PSN code. Beware of such websites and never provide them with any personal information. Users can access legitimate PSN codes by purchasing PlayStation Store Cash Cards.
