I am trying to use a Python package from GitHub with which I can access many information on steam: . However, in order to log in, I would need to provide use the path to my "Steam Guard File".

Or get this information:

    "steamid": "YOUR_STEAM_ID_64",
    "shared_secret": "YOUR_SHARED_SECRET",
    "identity_secret": "YOUR_IDENTITY_SECRET"

In order to access the information, I need to login using:

steam_client = SteamClient('MY_API_KEY')

There was another site Github page recommended to access this information, but it was mainly for mobile Steam Guard and I use my email address.

Can anyone help me to access the path to this Steam Guard file or the information it contains?

Many thanks in advance!

    This may be better suited for Stackoverflow, but you are going to want to include a minimal, reproducible sample of code as well or at least show what you have so far.

  • Yeah, I was thinking of asking it there too, but as this is not explicitly a coding question I thought I would post it here first.

  • And be careful with providing that kind of information. I suppose this is an offline or client-side file, but make sure no one else has access.

You can find your Steam Guard File in your Program Files (x86) / Steam Folder:

enter image description here

Please remember to not give anyone access to this file, as it could compromise your Account.

(The hidden file seems to be a honeypot, so you shouldn't need it)
