My gf is long distance right now and I was wondering if I could let her download a couple games I own digitally so we could play together. Is this possible or is it against the rules or something?

It should be possible to share, but not possible to play online together. I could be thinking of Steam's sharing system though.
I used to have a good signature, then I got modded for it.
Now I shall try to think of something edgier to put here.

First and foremost.
It's "against" the ToS to "account share".
However with that said it is possible to "account share", but you both cannot log into the same account simultaneously.
^So if you are going to account share, at least make sure your GF has her own account, so that way you both can play online, she will still have access to your games as long your account is "registered" to her PS4.

So if she had my account on her system, set it as the primary system, then switched back to her main account could we play online together in the same game?
