How To Turn Off Comments On Steam

Are you receiving a lot of random comments on your Steam profile? Do you want to stop other people from posting comments on your profile page? If that’s the case, you can turn off commenting on your Privacy Settings. Read on, and we’ll teach you how to do it on your Steam profile.


By default, anyone that visits your profile page on Steam can leave a comment. While it’s nice to have a few positive comments on your profile, there are people who use the comments section to harass users.

If you’re receiving a lot of unwanted comments from strangers on Steam, maybe it’s time to turn off commenting on your profile.

Here’s our guide about turning off comments on Steam.

How to disable comments on Steam

If you don’t want people writing comments on your Steam profile, you can turn off the option to do so. You can set commenting on your profile as “Private” to prevent other users from posting a comment on it.

You can turn off comments on your Steam profile whether you’re on your phone or computer. Check our tutorials below, and we’ll cover the steps for both devices.

On your computer:

  1. Open the Steam desktop app and sign in to your account.
  2. Click your profile name on the upper right side of the app and select “View my profile” from the menu. Alternatively, hover your mouse pointer over your display name at the upper left side of the app and select “Profile” from the menu.

  3. Click the “Edit profile” button.

  4. Head to the Privacy Settings tab.

  5. Scroll down and set “Can post comments on my profile” as private.

When you set commenting to private, only you can post comments on your profile. You can set it to “Friends Only” instead to allow your Steam friends to comment on your profile.

On your phone:

  1. Launch the Steam mobile app and sign in to your account.
  2. Tap your profile icon on the top right.
  3. Select the View Profile option.

  4. Tap the Edit Profile button on your profile page.

  5. Head to the Privacy Settings tab.

  6. Scroll down and set “Can post comments on my profile” to Private.

Changing your entire profile’s privacy setting to “Private” automatically turns off comments on your account.

Disabling comments on your account won’t delete existing ones on your profile. You need to delete them manually to remove them from your profile page.

To wrap things up

Now that you know how to turn off comments on Steam, you don’t need to worry about other people leaving random or hateful comments on your profile. If you want to allow your friends to leave a comment, you can choose the “Friends Only” option for commenting.
