Steam is one of the most popular gaming platforms in the industry with plenty of users around the world. It recently rolled out a new feature that allows users to hide embarrassing PC games they have purchased from friends.
Hiding embarrassing games from Steam wouldn’t prevent anyone from seeing them on your profile, but it would prevent them appearing in game libraries, or on your wall, or in friend’s recommendations. This helps users keep their gaming library a bit more private.
Why It’s Useful
This feature is helpful for those who don’t want their profile to be clean or flashy, but also don’t want to show off certain games. For example, a user mightying to hide, say, games featuring embarrassing graphics or gameplay. With the new Steam feature, users can customize their gaming library the way they want.
How To Access It
In order to access the feature, users simply have to go to their library, select a game they want to hide, and choose “Set Categories” from the upper-right menu. Once the game is hidden, it will no longer appear in the game library, and won’t be seen by friends or other users.
Steam’s new feature is a great way to hide embarrassing PC games from friends. It allows you to keep your library private and customize it the way you want. If you have games you don’t want to show off, make sure to hide them using Steam’s new feature.
