What to Do if You Forgot Steam Password


In this tutorial you are going to learn what to do if you forgot Steam password and can’t get access to your account.

Step # 1 – Starting the Recovery Process

Here you can see that we have the Steam log on area and this is what you won’t be able to get past if you have forgotten your password. At the bottom of the box click “Retrieve a lost account”. Assuming you know your account username make sure “I know my account name” is selected and click “Next”. Enter your account name and click “Next”.

Step # 2 – Getting the Verification Code

Steam will load for a moment and then you will be told that an email has been sent to your account for verification. Go to your email and open the message from Steam Support, within this you will find a verification code, copy this to your clipboard. Go back to the Steam window and paste the code into the “Verification code” box and click “Next”.
