Using Sims 4 cheats offers you a risk-free shortcut to the high life - free money, max skills, instant happiness and friendships, the ability to turn everyone into a plant... You name it!

Using cheats in The Sims 4 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 without having to worry about the consequences. Especially when it comes to building with no regulations.

Not only is it useful for experimenting and letting off some steam, but cheating in The Sims 4 cheats also allows you to stop Sims and objects from becoming stuck or trapped, so there's a practical use to them, too.

How to enter cheats in The Sims 4

While the PC and Mac versions of the Sims 4 accept all the cheats listed in this guide, on console, not all the codes will work. In addition to this, by using cheats on a console, you will disable Achievements and Trophies for that save, so be careful.

It is also important to note, many cheats require you to 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.
