You can now sign into Ci Media Cloud with the same Sony account you use with PlayStation®, BRAVIA® or many other Sony apps and services. See the full list in the chart below.
Here are a few reasons to use your Sony account to log in to Ci:
One of the key benefits of using this authentication option is that it allows you to centralize management of your Sony accounts with a single account. By using your Sony account to log in, you can avoid the hassle of remembering multiple usernames and passwords.
New users can register for Ci faster by signing up with an existing Sony account. Updating passwords or personal information is also simpler because your account is centrally managed through Sony.
We understand that security is a priority for our customers. That’s why Ci provides end-to-end encryption on data, single sign-on (SSO) and 2 factor authentication (2FA). Authenticating with your Sony account can reduce the number of places your information is stored which reduces the risk of cyber threats.
- Simple Account Management
Account information is automatically synced across different Sony services which means any updates to your account will be reflected across all linked Sony accounts.
How sign-in with Sony works
If you have a Ci account and an existing Sony account that use the same email address, you can now link your Ci login to your Sony account. Just click the Sign in with Sony button on the login page, enter your credentials and you will be prompted to link your accounts. From that point forward you can login with your Sony account.
If you are an existing enterprise customer and use your own company’s Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication to log in to Ci you should continue to use that option.

Ci Integrations with Sony products
Sony account authentication provides Ci users a simple way to access your account without compromising security. As Sony’s first cloud-based service, we’ve long supported integrations with Sony products (i.e. direct camera-to-cloud upload) and solutions.
The addition of Sony account authentication further deepens our integration with Sony’s portfolio apps and services and lays the groundwork for some exciting new offerings from Sony. Stay tuned to hear more news in the coming weeks!
