steam family sharing

If you are one of the people who has had a chance to use the new Steam family sharing option, then you might be interested to know about some of the changes that they have made. Valve recently updated the sharing options for, which now has implemented a two-step validation process.

Basically what this means is that a user’s account is now going to need to get clearance from the original account holder, but on top of getting the clearance you will also need to get authorization on the receiver’s hardware as well. All of this in order to gain access to the person sharing their library.

Essentially, this updated process is meant to help you as someone who is sharing their library. So that you have less problems, such as maybe getting some bans that might happen from someone accessing their library, or abusing the shared games on an authorized computer. Considering all of these changes, users are going to be able to grant access to 10 accounts, as well as 10 machines.

Do you use the Steam Family Sharing option? I never found myself actually lending someone my library of games, although I have the opportunity to do so. Do people lend you games maybe? Let me know in the comments below if this is a system you have been taking advantage of. Do you like it? Dislike it? Maybe you like or dislike how these changes are? Let us know!
