Youtube is one such thing you can’t get enough of, ever. However hard you try and be engaged with other applications. The personalized recommendations and its supercool algorithm is one thing you cannot stay away from for a long time.

As we checked out, this issue is so unique in its case. And here’s why!

We proceeded on to check with the Playstation Errors support to present to our users something legit, but to our utmost surprise, we typed the error in its search bar, and there is no account for any such error.We headed to research further and found that there has been a recent tweet via youtube that they are looking out for the possible fixes to this issue, but even to them, this hole seems very wide enough to be filled any sooner. At least we know that the work is going on, and good chances to get an official error fix soon. But for now, the Ask PlayStation puts something like this on twitter.

Why did this occur?

There appears to be a problem with the google account tie-up with your PSN account. This could explain pretty much why your account gets signed out as we can see from the above discussion that this problem seems to originate more from the google side, i.e., YT. Even in the tweets, we only have Youtube’s insight available and which is only retweeted from the Playstation side. We are not to blame any but to do whatever in our hands. However, there has been no official information regarding the same. It could be a big industry, secret business thing, we never know. However, this problem is worldwide, and it has taken many users into its pitfall.
