Proxy settings in Steam and Store currency switch

Steam is a platform for buying PC games, DLCs, and software. However, some users are unable to buy the game due to regional or local restrictions. To bypass these restrictions, gamers use a proxy server.

  • With a proxy, you can hide your IP address and replace it with the data of any other country in which the game is available. This way you will be able to buy Steam products from anywhere in the world.
  • Proxies are also used to save money: the same game can cost differently in different countries.
  • Proxies will also help you create as many Steam accounts as you like. For each of them, you need to bind the IP address, and then the system will not track that they are created from the same device.

Step-by-step proxy settings in Steam

Steam does not support the use of proxies, so we will show you how to set up servers through the optional Proxifier program. It can be easily found and downloaded on the Internet.

  1. Download and run the Proxifier program.
  2. Click the "Profile" tab and select "Proxy Servers".
