How to get a steam web publisher api key

Recommended Posts

I found out that when API key is taken from my account.

If the privacy of the steam friends I have is set to friends only,when I do a API call to the endpoint "GetPlayerSummaries" even though their privacy must be "friends only"(2). the endpoint sends me data which tells their 'communityvisibilitystate' is 3 because they have set their privacy to friends only,and my account is a friends of thier's.So I gather if i have a steam publisher web api key this wont happen.I did try to this but steam asked to pay fee and something about taxes it was really overwhelming so i wanted to know is taking a steam publisher web api key is the right way or just created a new account with no friends and taking a web api key from that?.Please help me out.Any help regarding this is appriciated.Thank you.

Profiles must be public to use GetPlayerSummaries, regardless of whether you're friends with them or not. You almost definitely don't need a publisher key for whatever you're trying to do, and I don't think it would make a difference in this case anyway.
