This problem happens to me when I log into the Steam Website. When I go to a different page of the website, it just automatically logs me out of the site. For example: I just logged in, and when I click "Community" or "Store" it loads me to the page and it just logs me out but I didn't even do anything...

How do I solve this problem? What are the reasons why this occurs?

Try the typical "clear your cookies" and everything.

@user Shawni: I have Steam. The problem is that it just automatically logs off the website.

@Devgru101,

Is the problem happening when you are using the built-in web browser in the Steam client, or actually your main web browser (MSIE, Firefox, Chrome, etc...)?

If it's the latter, Steam's Store page, as well as all of the community pages (your profile page, Steam group pages, and the "Community" page) do *NOT* store login cookies.

Always had been a PITA for me, as I usually use my web browser for surfing around Steam's site (as I detest the built-in Steam web browser). But, I threw together this VB script to assist in logging in (only works for MSIE) -> http://jasonwilliams400com.startlogic.com/snor/weeds/Swamp_Buzzards_Clan/Steam_Community_Auto_Login/

You got logged off automatically if one of these two things happened:
> Your password got changed
> Someone logged in your steam account
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. - Psalm 91:7-8 ESV

NEVER check the option "log in automaticly" if you have a trojan virus your data CAN be stolen because its saved in a file in your steam inventory.

Better to check out FAQ or just create a support ticket.
Wonder why you created it here..

I've had similar issues on other websites. Clearing cookies usually works.

Otherwise i recommend u use another browser. I had these errors with google chrome, but not with firefox.

Games may be but why would it be?
They are updating it regularly already and if you got problems then contact support, you lazy ass.

Maybe the reason not in steam, maybe something wrong with cookies.
And try other browser, maybe there it would be ok. Of thats okey - your default browser messing with your cookies.

If the problem is with his Steam Client iteself, clearing browser cookies will have NO effect whatsoever. The Steam Client stores it's login information elsewhere (within several of the files located in the main Steam directory).

That being said, like I replied previously, if his problem is when using his web browser; again, clearing cookies/browser cache/etc.. will ALSO have NO effect (for ANY web browser)... as Steam's web site and pages do NOT store login information (via cookies, or otherwise anything else for that matter).

Just for clarification:

There ARE two areas of Steam's web site where cookies ARE used for login info. Steam's tech support area -> http://support.steampowered.com , as well as the official Steam forums -> http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/index.php .

But, cookies aren't used for the rest of their web pages and site (including the "Community", user profile, and Steam "groups" pages).
