Cheats in The Sims 4 are used by entering them into a cheat console. PC players will be familiar with these because they're commonly found in PC games, but players on the PS4 or Xbox One may not be entirely familiar with them.

Here's how to open the cheat console in The Sims 4:

  • PC: Press Ctrl + Shift + C
  • Mac: Press Command + Shift + C
  • PS4: Hold all four shoulder buttons at once (L1 + L2 + R1 + R2)
  • Xbox One: Hold all four shoulder buttons at once (LB + LT + RB + RT)

Once the console has been opened, make sure to enable cheats by typing in "testingcheats true." Note that on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, enabling cheats or using cheat codes will disable Achievements/Trophies.
