    Why does PSN install mobile phone for purchasing in the PS Store?

    Last time I went to the PS Store for bought Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Revelation game series when they were on sale off, I pressed "Add Funds" for redeeming codes from my PSN cards I bought and then I noticed mobile phone is on this. I didn't know about that and I don't get notified about that. Oh, well, now I tell you about this, I would use my mobile phone to get extra funds for buying any stuffs in PS store but I can't risk I can do it. Remember about PSN got hacked couple of years ago? It is about someone hacked the gamers' credit cards. That's what I heard about that. Thank goodness for I didn't use a credit card for that PS store. I always bought PSN cards. What if their mobile phones get hacked after they purchase some stuff in the PS stores? You know, ADT security system in a home owner's mobile phone? It is not a good idea for using the mobile phone with security system to purchase stuffs in the PS Store. I better be careful with this and I only make my choice for buy PSN cards so usually. I know what I think about that, my thinking tells me, "After I spent my PSN card, when new stuffs come out or some stuffs are getting expire soon then what if I don't have enough money to buy more PSN cards? Can I use my mobile phone to get more funds for buy them?" My answer is no and too risky for me. I can be patient and conserve my money.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the hackers going that route and besides hackers can go any route they choose doesn't matter what you do if it has a chip and access to the internet then they can hack into it.

    Safest way buy PSN cards I would never give out my credit card info on PS Store. Leave that controller and go back to school.

    I haven't been in the PSstore for a while (since July) and, when I was there, I didn't notice anything mobile phone related.

    Can someone explain this feature? I'm assuming its just something like an "Add funds from your phone", "Purchase item from your phone" and/or "PSstore app" kinda thing?

    You're not the only one mate Seems something about a mobile app could lead to accounts getting hacked.

    I got that impression. Not something that everyone has access to though, so some people may not know what it is. We sure don't have it here in AUS

    Ahhh. I've never noticed that before. It must be either really new or, I've always missed it because I added funds through Account Management's "Redeem Code".

    Thanks for the screenshot!

    No problem, pal. About Account Management, I usually added funds through that too and I save some funds for buy some future stuffs in the PS store.
