Can my SteamID and/or Steam Account Name be changed?

Your SteamID and Steam Account Name can not be changed, even by Steam Support staff members. Your Steam Community ID can be changed at any time in your Steam Community settings, under "Edit my SteamID page".

 

Can I Merge Accounts

Steam accounts can not be merged together.

Per the Steam Subscriber Agreement, Steam game subscriptions / CD keys are nontransferable and cannot be reset / moved between Steam accounts.

 

Can I delete my Steam account?

If you are sure that you don't want to use Steam anymore, you can submit a Steam Support request to terminate your account. Steam Support will ask that you provide comprehensive Proof of Ownership prior to fulfilling the request.

More details can be found in our Account Termination - Common Questions FAQ.
