How to Delete A Steam Account

Steam is a game platform website that provides more than 1,000 games for Steam users. Once you’ve activated your account, you must purchase games from Steam to play online or on your computer (the specific details are available when you download the game.)Some of the games available on Steam are free to play during designated times. If you don’t want your Steam account any longer, you can only stop using the account as there is no means to delete your Steam account.

Deleting My Account: Step By Step

Steam requires customers to pay for game downloads. Because the right of use is transferred with the purchase, Steam will not honor any request to delete a Steam account after a purchase has been made and downloaded. If you have a Steam account that you have not used (no purchases and no downloads), you can email customer support and request the account be deleted. More information can be found on the support page at


You can delete a Steam account from your personal computer, however.

  • Click on Start in the lower left corner of your computer screen.
  • Move the mouse up to Control Panel and click twice.
  • Go to Programs and click twice.
  • Select Uninstall a Program.
  • Find Steam and click on the name once.
  • Click Uninstall and wait for the uninstall to complete.
  • You may be asked to restart your computer at this time.

Is There a Cancellation Fee?

There is no means of cancelling your Steam account, so there is no cancellation fee. If you are able to contact support and you have not purchased any games, you are not likely required to pay a fee to cancel the account, but there are no details about account deletion via Steam customer service.
