Hello,

I'd love a feature for Steam OTP Generation. Bitwarden supports Steam OPT, and therefore this is definitely possible if you know your secret key. Obtaining the secret is possibly by extracting it from old android apps or using steam desktop authenticator.

Hope to see this feature soon!

  • Hello @Shirotaku! 👋

    Thank you for the feedback! 1Password, as an authenticator app, supports the Time-based one-time password (TOTP) standard for one-time passwords. The team has discussed Steam's proprietary format in the past and it's unlikely that this is something that we'll support.

    The reason is because Steam has made the conscious decision to require users to use their own app and we want to respect that. We also don't want to run the risk of having our users be locked out of their Steam accounts in the event that Steam changes their algorithm in the future, rendering one-time passwords saved in 1Password obsolete since they don't match the new algorithm.

    I would encourage you to reach out to Steam to ask that they offer an option to use TOTP for two-factor authentication so that you can use other authenticator apps, like 1Password, to save the one-time password for your Steam account.
