Steam is a platform where gamers can buy, play, discuss and create games.

With nearly 30,000 games ranging from AAA to indie, there is something for everyone on the platform.

If you use Steam and want to hide your gaming habits from your friends, you can do it in one simple process.

Through their Steam profile, players can limit their account visibility to friends or just themselves.

Without selecting these settings, your gaming activity is accessible to all members of the platform.

With just a few simple steps, you can keep everything private.

First you need to open your Steam account and go to your profile in the top right corner.

Then you need to click on the drop down folder and click on “View my profile”.

In the next step, click on “Edit profile” and find your privacy settings.

This button should be in the side menu on the left side of the screen.

You can find “Game Details” on the privacy page. There you will find your friends list and your inventory, which contains items you have collected in games via Steam Trading.

You’ll also see a tab with a drop-down arrow indicating what visibility setting you have.

Here you can choose between “Public”, “For friends only” or “Private”.

By clicking “Private” you ensure that nobody but you can see which games you played and when.
