You can finally say goodbye to the clunky and dated Steam mobile app. Valve has released a redesigned version of its Steam mobile app for Android and iOS that has been in testing since at least August of this year.

When looking for beta testers for the app, the game developer stated that it was rebuilt “on a new framework and modernized the design.” It has also bundled new features into the app, such as the ability to log in using QR codes.

The new sign-in method allows you to access your Steam account without entering your username or password. It verifies your identity by using the two-factor authentication credentials stored on your phone.

If you use Steam’s QR sign-in method, after scanning the code with your phone, the app will display a confirmation page with details, such as a map with the approximate location of the device you’re signing into. This ensures that you are approving your own login attempt.

If you prefer to log in with your username and password, the app will still prompt you to accept or reject the sign-in attempt. And, if you want to make sure no device is linked to your account that shouldn’t be, you can now review and, if necessary, revoke access in the Authorized Devices page.
