If you’re like most PC gamers, you’ve probably got a few games in your Steam library, if not dozens. But while having all your games in one place can be incredibly convenient, it also makes Steam accounts prime targets for hackers and scammers.

Like with most apps, the best way to keep your Steam account safe is by using a strong password (probably one created by a password manager). And luckily, you can change your Steam password in a variety of ways.

Note: Once you change your password, it’ll log you out of Steam on any device that has your account information saved. You’ll just need to log back in with your new password.
