How to stop being notified when...

#1PSPjkpkPosted 10/5/2013 12:40:29 PM
Purchasing something on PSN? I share accounts with my brother and I recently bought the DLC for CoD BO 2 and GTA V and he knows I spent a lot. Anyway, I wanna buy EDF 2017 for $15 bucks without him getting an email. Anyway to disable the notifications?

They have to email you as a confirmation of purchase, in case you ever need proof you bought something. It's basically a receipt. I don't think you can turn it off.

The only thing I can think of is if you can log in and change the notification to go to a different email. It might get kinda tricky with changing the email associated with the psn account.

Not sure it's even gonna work.

You can change the e-mail associated with the account, but your brother will find out anyway since he won't be able to log in when he attempts to do so. At which point, you'll have to either give him the new e-mail and he'll know something's up, or you'll refuse and he'll still know something's up. Of course, this may be delayed if he doesn't ever manually log in or use the online website, as you can remain logged in indefinitely on your gaming devices (unless it automatically logs you out after changing the e-mail or you've set it so that the log in details aren't saved). There doesn't appear to be a win-win option, perhaps you could consider creating your own account and purchasing EDF there.

Can you just tell your brother you are spending some bday money and it's not that big of a deal?

why not just stop sharing accounts.....

Why not just respect your brother's wishes and hold off on EDF for now?

If you're willing to make an effort, anything can happen (I hope...)

1. Is it your money you're spending or his? If it's yours, why should he care? If it's his, he'll know anyway considering the fact that he could check his bank statements.

2. Even if you could turn off the e-mail notifications he could just check the download history and see what's been purchased.

3. Why not just make your own account and avoid the need to sneak and deceive altogether?

I'm confused, why does it matter if your brother knows you buy things?

How does he know your e-mail password anyway?

Anyway, uh nope to your question.
