Make an account by going to Steam website

Another method of creating a Steam account is by using the Steam website. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Go to the following website: https://store.steampowered.com/login/
  2. Click on Join Steam
  3. Fill out the form and click on Create My Account.
  4. Follow the prompts to finish the account creation process.

That’s it! Both of these methods will work as long as you enter the correct information. Make sure to keep the email address associated with your Steam account active in order to gain continues access in case you forget your username or password.

Depending on the game you’ll be playing later on, you may or may also need to add a valid phone number or spend on certain items or games in order to play online. For example, in order to play Dota 2 ranked game, you’ll have to enter a phone number, play at least 100 hours of unranked games, and spend a certain amount using your Steam account.
