How do I recover a forgotten Steam password?
Each of us at least once in our life forgot personal data for authentication in some service or website. And almost every PC gamer at least once forgot the password for his Steam account, where his favorite toys are stored. In today’s post, we’ll show you how you can regain access to Steam.
Steam password recovery
Immediately you need to warn about the following: you will not be able to magically recover the password that you used to log into your account earlier. You will have to reset your password and replace it with another, new password. However, you can make the new password look like the old one, but it’s up to you. We will simply return access to your account.
So, launch the Steam client on your computer (or MacBook) and click on the “I can’t log in …” button, which is located under the fields for entering your account name and password. If you would like to guide the recovery process through the Steam website, then go to this link, click on the “Login” button, then click on the “Forgot your password?” link, which will also be located under the forms for entering personal data from your account.
One way or another, you will be taken to a support page with four points on the topic of logging into your account. Click on “I forgot my Steam account name or password.” Next, enter your Steam account name, email address, or mobile phone number in the blank field. Click on the “Search” button.
If the system managed to find your Steam account, then you need to click on the item “Send the account confirmation code to ***********@******.***”. Next, you need to open the letter sent by the support forces and find the confirmation code in it. Then copy this code to the clipboard, paste it into the appropriate fields on the Steam support page and click “Continue”.
Then click on the “Change password” item to take the appropriate action. You will be taken to the password change screen: enter the new password twice and click on the “Change password” button. As soon as you do this, you can safely log into your account again using your old username and new password.
If it so happened that you really do not remember or have lost access to the email that is linked to your Steam account (anything can happen), then you need to click on the item “I no longer have access to this email address. mail “instead of” Send account verification code to … “. You will see a screen with many fields in which you must specify as much information as possible about your account.
Once you have finished entering your support information (make sure you include as much information as possible), click on the Submit button. A code will be sent to the new email address, which you will need to enter in the next window, after which you can change the password for your account. In general, the difficulty of password recovery for Steam will depend on whether you have access to the linked email or not.
