Turn Off Share Play Requests on PS4

Ask a question
The PlayStation 4 enables you to share your gameplay session with other PSN users through a built-in feature called Share Play.

A result of using Share Play is that anyone who has access to your PSN profile page can request to join or watch your gameplay (by clicking on Now Playing > Request to Watch).

If you are feeling overwhelmed by notifications of this type, you can turn off this feature in the console settings.
