How to find your/someones SteamID?
Three simple ways to get your or someones Steam ID.
What is SteamID?
The SteamID is identifier used to identify a Steam account.
Every Steam user has a unique SteamID, that cannot be changed.
Why should I have this knowledge?
There may be many situations when you'll need to it.
  • SteamID is good way to search information about users (Google is really helpful).
  • On many internet Forums SteamID needs to be filled in the profile options.
  • Sometimes is needed for Unban application or for cheater report.
First method - in game console
This is an easiest way, when we are running a game.

Press ~ key on your keyboard (it's named Tilde). It will open your console.
Then write "status" and press Enter.

This will show list of connected players with their SteamID's.
You can Copy/Paste informations from console with CTRL+C/CTRL+V keyboard shortcuts.
Secondary method - SteamRep is the most known website with informations about Steam users.
You can search users by profile URL or by their custom profile address (alias).
SteamID will be shown here:
Third method - special websites
How to get Steam profile address?
The easiest way is to use Steam browser.
To do it You must enable showing of the URL address in Steam options.

If You don't have it enabled:
  • Enter into Steam options
  • Next open Interface tab
  • Check "Display Steam URL address bar when available"

  • Press OK
If You have enabled showing URL already - open Your friends list.
Choose a person, open his menu and choose "View Steam Profile".
(You can click on His avatar too - it's faster way)

Select and copy address (CTRL+C).

Now You can use it to find SteamID.

I am still waiting for steam to show the ID in the user interface. What is taking them sooo long?

None of the websites work for me, not even when signing in through steam cause i always get another player (Avaq) as a result. Is there a website that lists out more people with same name?

Im too lazy to wait for games to open to check ID

When I use the URL method and I check someone's profile, I can't find the /id/ links.

I think the last chance is but you need to make your profile public.

Go look at your "Friend Activity". Check the day when you become friends with him. He will be there.

Yo man , can you still find someone's id if they blocked you? I had a conv with a scammer but my computer froze and I had to close the conv with the guy and I dont have his profile . Searching his name leads me to 3.5k results .

Extremely useful for server setup as many commands require steam IDs but you can't get them ingame until the server is already online.

(Almost everything is 32 bit for compatability's sake because even though most machines can run 64 bit, 64 bit applications encounter alot of weird bugs for some reason.)
