    I don't think you can password protect the local accounts, but you can stop the PSN account from signing in automatically.

    I thought that was the case, I hope they get this sorted soon in one of their many updates.

    What do you mean by PSN?

    PSN = PlayStation Network. It's the online bit that lets you play the games online and buy content, etc.

    You can't password protect your user, but you can set your PSN (your Playstation Network account - i.e. what lets you play online, access the store, send messages) to not login automatically.
    I'm in the same problem - my little bro always logs on to my account to play games because I've got better game saves than him :mad:
    Hopefully they'll release this in a near update :thumbsup:
