Guide

What to do:

 

Change the password for your email address (But not for the steam account, yet)

Set up your steam profile and go to “clear previous aliases” at your profile

Set your steam profile friends only or private for the first 3 months

Make sure you don’t give the impression you have just bought this account

 

What to avoid:

 

Never add a phone number that was already attached to another steam account

Do not change the email address of the Steam account (before 6 months)

Avoid any kind of violation of Steam service (e.g. using stolen credit cards, etc.)

When buying games or funding Steam wallet, you should not add more than $10 during the first month (highly recommended)

Avoid changing your steam password for the first 1 month

If you change the email, make sure it’s not attached to other accounts

Do not log in from multiple IPs, especially not from different countries

If you want to use VPN, make sure to use it through only one country

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a question after purchasing:

The Years of Service badge is not showing the correct account age, what to do?
This is perfectly normal, you will either need to buy a game worth at least $5 or add at least $5 to your Steam wallet. This will completely solve the problem. To learn more about this, visit: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=3330-IAGK-7663
I can’t log in to the email address / Steam account, what to do?
Please double check whether you are trying to log in to the same email provider (for example gmx.net is different than gmx.com), also mind not to copy any space after the password. If you have any problems, add us on Discord or send an email to us.
I want to use this account as my main, any advice?
You will be perfectly fine if you follow our Guide on how to start using old Steam accounts.
How can I change the password for the email?

If you have bought a web.de, gmx.de or gmx.net account, please follow these instructions:

When you log in, you will see Mein Account on the left menu, go to:
Mein Account > Login and Sicherheit > Passwort (Passwort ändern) then enter the old password first, then the new one twice.

I bought an account with the original CD key, how can I use it?
