PS5  Game Sharing, Console Sharing and Offline Play

The most important thing to do before setting up the PS5 for Game Sharing, Console Sharing and Offline Play is to make sure that you have signed into the correct PS5 account. After that, go to the Settings option on the top-right corner of the main PS5 Menu where all games and apps are.

Choose the Users and Accounts option from the Settings menu and select Console Sharing and Offline Play. There would be a prompt detailing how game sharing works and what happens should the user decide to disable or enable it. You can choose to enable it, but you can always change it anytime you change your mind.

When the PS5 game share or console share is enabled, games linked to that account could be installed on the console even if the account is already logged out. It is worth noting that both accounts can only have Console Sharing or game Sharing enabled to one PS5 console. It is important that you trust whoever it is you are console or game sharing with.
