Important - Can't Add Friends or Trade With Others?
What should I do if I can't add friends?

If you can't add other users as friends on Steam, this likely means you are on a "Limited" Steam account.

To remove the limitations from the account, you will need to do one of the following:

  • Add the equivalent of $5 USD or more to your Steam Wallet
  • Purchase a game(or multiple games) that are equal to $5 USD or more from the Steam store
  • Add a Steam Wallet card that is equal to $5 USD or more to your Steam account
  • Purchase a Steam gift that is equal to $5 USD or more from the Steam store (Receiving a Steam gift from a friend doesn't count)

If your account is currently "Limited" you can view your status on the Support site here.
An example is shown below:

You can read more about Limited Steam accounts here:
» Steam Support - Limited User Accounts


What should I do if I can't trade with others?

There are multiple reasons why an account would be prevented from trading, such as recently resetting your password or disabling Steam Guard.

Please read the following Steam Support article in full to determine why your account may be prevented from trading:
» Steam Support - Trading and Market Restrictions


It's important to remember that no-one on the forums can remove these restrictions for you. You must do what is mentioned in the Steam Support articles to remove any restrictions on your account.

Thank you.
