There will be times that we ask you for your Steam ID. If you are not sure what this is, it is a lengthy number that is your unique Steam account identifier, that number will always start with a 7.
There are two ways to find your Steam ID. One is through the Steam website and the other method is through the Steam client. Below you'll find a how-to for both ways.
- Log in to the Steam website here.
- In the top right corner click on your Steam name, you'll see a menu open up.
- Select "Account details"
- Your Steam name will show in capital letters at the top right of the page, right underneath your Steam name you will see the Steam ID associated with your account.
- Once you're logged in to your Steam client check the top left corner and click on "View". Once you see the menu pop up, scroll all the way down and click on "Settings".
- In the "Settings", select "Interface". From here look at the available options and checkmark "Display web address bars when available".

- You'll notice a URL under the headers. The numbers shown after profiles/ is your Steam ID.
NOTE: If you have a custom Steam URL, you'll need to take a few extra steps in order to see your Steam ID.
