How to share your Steam games with your best friend?

Steam, the digital distribution service Valve, provides a vast library of games to buy and play on your machine, both old and modern. While Game Abonnement Services like Apple Arcade and Google Play Pass become increasingly popular, Steam allows you to buy individual games and you don’t have to pay a monthly fee if you want that one title only.

Steam makes it easy for gamers to create a large gaming library with no monthly payments and regular sales.

Moreover, you can share with family members your library of Steam games. While this feature encourages parents to distribute and track what their children play, it allows you to play games that are popular with others. Here’s a step by step guide on how your Steam library can be shared.

Secure your account with Steam Guard

First of all, you want to preserve your game library, so it will still be safeguarded and in charge even though you share your account. You must allow Steam Guard in order to do this. Steam Guard – which is free to switch on – offers an extra level of protection to avoid unauthorised access to your account.

Secure your account with Steam Guard

Here’s how to enable Steam Guard on your account:

Step 1: Go to Steam’s homepage or Your steam client and make sure you’re logged in.
Step 2: In the upper right corner, click your profile username.
Step 3: In the drop-down menu, click Account Details.
Step 4:
 Scroll down to Account Security and click Manage Steam Guard.

Share your library with your friend

Log into your family member or friend’s computer with your Steam account to get started. Make sure you’re operating from the Steam app on the desktop. In the top left corner, click Steam and select Preferences from the drop-down menu.

Select Family in the side menu, then click the box that says Authorize Library Sharing on this computer.

This allows you to allow any accounts which have linked to the same computer. If you have nobody else, you will receive a message saying “No other local accounts found.” Log out of your account after this, and your friend or family member can log in to your own account. You should now be able to download selected games in your library and instal them.

Up to five users can be selected who can use and access your library from 10 approved devices.
