Can't create a steam account through VPN

Recommended Posts

I tried multiple servers in both Canada and the US. Steam detects that I'm using a VPN. I get the following error:

Please disconnect from VPNs or proxies and try again.

Good info, though unsurprising due to regional pricing and the prospect of people using VPNs to create smurfs in Russia, then gifting games to accounts in the EU or US, thus undermining the whole point of Steam's price matrix.

You have not been able to gift a game across regions on Steam for years.  The only way to save on regional pricing is by moving your account to that country and using a payment method located in said country.

AirVPN is blacklisted on Steam.  There are some parts on Steam you can access if you already have an account.  But for example, if you are using AirVPN and try and access the Community, it will not connect.  The same is true for NordVPN. 

There are other VPN providers that this is not an issue.
