In this article we will show you how to remove a credit card from PS5 should you have security doubts or just want to lessen the risk of credit card exposure. First, let’s give more details on why credit card details get saved in the first place. Buying a product over the counter is pretty convenient as all you have to do most of the time is just hand over money. Making a purchase online is not that straightforward as there are many parties involved including your bank, the recipient’s bank, your credit or debit card company, payment security software, and so on. With online purchases, you will have to verify payment by inputting security codes, transaction PINs, and credit card numbers.
This explains why many online stores and payment platforms ask if you would love to save your credit or debit card number with them as the numbers are long and not easy to memorize. The intention behind this is to make payments and purchases more convenient when shopping from them next time. However, we are talking about the digital and virtual world here where, judging from the experiences of many, things are not as secure as you might think. This is the reason cyber security experts advise you not to save your credit card details on any online shopping platform. If you have saved your credit card details already on your PS5 account, let’s show you how to remove it.
