      You've misinterpreted Hakoom's & Roughdawg4's posts.Using someone else's/another psn id's save data will most definetely get you flagged for inaccurate data.

      What you are seeing here with this particular user is whats called Ps3 to Ps4 Auto Pops/Insta Trophies. It is very similar to the Ps3 to Vita & vice versa cloud save auto pops. If you've earned these trophies on one system, when you transfer your own id's stats or cloud save to the other, they will auto pop on the second system without having to complete the requirements a second time. This only works on about 8 or 9 ps3/vita games,(such as Sly Cooper Thieves in time, Soundshapes) and as far as im aware, two ps3-ps4 games. (Again, Soundshapes and Battlefield 4)and it is Ps3 to Ps4 only in this case.

      For this user and the mp trophies in question, he/she earned the mp trophies in Bf4 on their Ps3 system between November 2nd, 2013 and Nov 16th, 2013. On December 4th, 2013 the user started Bf4 mp on Ps4 with his/her id, transfering their stats over from Ps3 version to Ps4 version, thus causing the mp trophies to auto pop. In this case, it is not considered cheating.

      Friendly reminder: if you care about your id and whether or not you have leaderboard rankings/inaccurate data flag, i advise you to not use a friends save data to pop off your trophies. You will eventually be flagged for that, especially in Moto Apoc.

        iam not sure about that
        but when i played BF4 on ps4 it asked me if i want to transfer my data bla bla which was a 1 time thing only...
        so you cant do it more than once
        and once i did the mp trophies poped after playing 1 game

        no..
        seems you are abit new to the trophy thing

        some games share the same save file between ps/vita
        so if for example you earn a trophy on the vita.. you can cloud sync that ( in game cloud sync) not ps+ cloud transfer.. you can then earn the trophy on the vita ps3 or ps4.. sound shapes is an example of that...

        jt explained it in more details and i hope it helps you understand

                We have no way to know about these games if they hide them prior to being added to the site. However, users with hidden games are only allowed to participate on the main leaderboard.

              Hi , is the yellow "hidden trophies" flag under My avatar considered I'm cheating?!

              what if I did a mistake and cheat in a game years ago but hide the game ?! , is it considered as cheating ??

                Hiding games is a supported feature of Playstation and is not considered cheating. However, it will exclude you from all but the standard leaderboard.

                • Good , so no flag for old mistakes as long as I'm hiding the game...

                        Unfortunately not. I wish Sony would do something to fix these types of problems.

                    • Earning ps4 trophies while on WEED AND BEING HIGH is cheating??....please answer

                      Comment


                      • I have a general question. Is there any posibillity to detect a modded or hacked trophy with a changed time stamp? I need any difference between a legit earned trophy and a hacked one. I play for trophys but i lost the fun, when i know that it is possible to easily hack them. I would be happy, if someone could help me out. ????????

                          We are able to detect if a trophy's timestamp was changed, but sometimes this is not a sign of cheating. Sony will automatically change a timestamp to the earliest time a trophy was earned if it was earned on multiple consoles for example. Don't worry though, we have a lot of ways we detect cheating so the leaderboards should be pretty clean. If you discover a cheater please report it using the Contact Us tab on the right side of the site.
