The Sims 4 cheat codes list: Money, Make Happy, Career, Aspiration, Satisfaction and Building cheats and more

How to shortcut your way to happiness, wealth and more with our The Sims 4 cheats.

Sims 4 cheat codes allow you to shortcut your way to the high life - free money, free houses, instant happiness and friendships, you name it.

It might spoil some of the fun of having to build up to having a best friend relationship or scrimping and saving for that dream home, but it also allows you to be as creative as you like as soon as possible - especially when it comes to building with no regulations.

Sims 4 cheats also allow you to stop Sims and objects from become stuck or trapped, so there's a practical use to them, too.

On this page:

There are also additional cheats to be found depending on the add-on - such as how to become a Mermaid in The Sims 4 in the Island Living expansion and how to become a Spellcaster in Realm of Magic.

All Sims 4 cheats start by inputting at least one Sims 4 code, then going from there - so once you have the basics, you can then start layering on as many cheats as you like.

How to enter cheats in The Sims 4 on PC

To enter The Sims 4 cheats, you have to bring up the Cheat Console:

  • How to enter cheats on The Sims 4 on PC and Mac: Press Ctrl + Shift + C together

This will then bring up the Cheat Console. Enter the cheat of your choice, press the Enter Key, and the Sims 4 cheat will come into effect.

It's worth noting that many cheats require you enter 'testingcheats true' beforehand. Doing so will reveal the command 'Cheats are enabled', which signifies this is active.

Not all Sims 4 cheats need this enabled, but since so many do, it's worth getting into the habit of setting it active at the start of any sessions so you aren't caught out.

From there, are many different types of The Sims 4 cheats available. The following are tested and confirmed to be correct for the PC version of The Sims 4 in May 2019, though later versions and other platforms may differ:
