How to Log Off on a PS4. Your PS4 can have as many as four profiles signed in at the same time. If you want to add a new profile, you must log off from one of those profiles first. This article teaches you how to log off on a PS4. In the case that you log out of your PS4 without first logging out of the PSN, your account will automatically try to reconnect to the PlayStation Network as soon as you log into that account on PS4 again.
Up to four users can log in to your PS4™ system at the same time. When multiple users are logged in and a user presses the PS button on the controller, that user’s home screen appears.
How to Log in on a PS4
You’ll need to select a user when you turn on your PS4™ system or when you connect a controller. To log in, select a user and then follow the on-screen instructions.
Select [New User] to create a new user and log in, or log in as a guest.
When you connect a controller, the light bar will glow in a uniquely assigned colour. The colour that is assigned depends on the order in which the controller is connected. The first controller connected is blue, the second is red, the third is green, and the fourth is pink.
Your PS4™ system can automatically log you in. You can also set a passcode that will be required when you log in. For details, see “Login Settings“.
Your PS4™ system can automatically log you in by face recognition, using previously saved face data.
When you select the checkbox for (Settings) > [Login Settings] > [Enable Face Recognition], the system uses the camera to recognise you and automatically log you in.
If you want to log in as a user who has not added face data, or if you want to log in as a new user, exit the face recognition screen and select the appropriate user.
Log in with your status appearing offline by pressing the OPTIONS button and then selecting [Log In With Online Status [Appear Offline]]. You will appear offline to Friends and other players and will no longer be listed in activities and [Now Playing].
How to Log out on a PS4

Select [Power] > [Log Out of PS4] on the quick menu.
When you turn off your system or put your system in rest mode, all users are logged out.
You can assign a device to another user without logging out by selecting [Switch User].
