Valve has unveiled a game-changing privacy feature for Steam today, granting players control over the visibility of their game library.

Beta testers can now discreetly mark games as private, shielding choices from prying eyes. Whether concealing a guilty pleasure like “OnlyCans: Thirst Date” or safeguarding an eclectic taste in simulators, this update allows users to curate their gaming persona.

The privacy setting isn’t just an afterthought; it’s seamlessly integrated into the shopping experience. Users can make a game private from various entry points, including the shopping cart, web browser game list, or directly within the Steam client.

Valve’s commitment to user autonomy and seamless functionality positions this update as a win for gamers who value discretion and convenience in managing their digital game collections.
