Steam is the most popular online gaming platform for PC gamers, with a huge catalog of games available and a built-in social system that lets you connect with your friends.

Games are always more fun when playing with friends, so making sure they can find your profile easily is a useful task. If you want to change your Steam Custom URL, you’ve come to the right place.

What is a Steam Custom URL?

A Steam Custom URL is the URL that appears when someone navigates to your profile page, after the steampowered.com/ part of the web address. People can access your profile to send you a friend request, view your accomplishments, give you a gift, or compare their profile to yours. You can even play remotely together.

Steam doesn’t have a unique display name feature like other platforms, which means you can have the same display name as someone else. For this reason, finding someone’s profile can be confusing as often they will have the same display name as 20+ others. To work around this problem, custom URLs are useful because, by following a link with a custom URL, you will find the right person you are looking for.

  1. Go to the Steam site and log in.

  2. Click your display name at the top right of the screen, then select View profile from the drop-down menu.

  3. On the right side of the screen, under your level, click Edit profile.

  4. In the Custom url field, type the desired URL.

  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to safeguard.
