Is steam idle master safe?

It still depends what you understand by "safe".

ProgramCan trigger VAC?Will trigger VAC?Requires steam?Still supported?Supports multiple accounts?Supports offline farming?Can you get banned if Valve decides they don't like you?
ASFNoNot possibleNoYesYesYesYes
Idle MasterYesProbably noYesNoNoNoYes

All of those three can be called "safe" as noone of those is confirmed to do trigger VAC. However, if you call "safe" a possibility, rather than actual effect, then only ASF can guarantee being VAC-free, as IM and SAM use DLL hooking method into steam client to trigger game played, while ASF has it's own client and does not require steam running, it doesn't have to be even installed.

Is steam idle master safe to use?
I heard about this program that collects cards that you dont have collected yet, and have the right to collect. But I have so many games I dont even play, and I want the cards from those games too. The program just collects the cards basically while you are doing something else.

So, if I use this program, will I get vac banned, or worse? I really do NOT want to lose my account.

VAC secure games and Idle Master

Please never ever use 3rd party software programs again while playing on VAC secured servers, THAT is the silly thing to do. You will permanently have that VAC mark and won't be ever able to justify in removing it, because your honest reason of it won't have any credibility since its easy to fabricate excuses like "I was just using a script or a non-harmful program". Even if you were using a completely harmless program like idle master, if you ever happened to get a VAC ban because of that, then the majority of people including steam support will not believe your case, even if its true.

This is Idle Master thankfully, and i don't think i have seen a case of someone being VAC banned because of it alone. Since you used Idle Master, The VAC server triggered a suspicious activity on your side and you got kicked for 7 days because of that. 

The problem being that VAC doesn't always differentiate between malicious 3rd party programs for cheating, and non-malicious 3rd party programs like Idle master or steam achievement manager. So its very possible that it could trigger a VAC ban while running steam related programs even if they don't affect the game at all, because it was built that way.

The creator of the Idle Master itself advised against using it on a VAC server, because it actually has a chance to trigger the VAC program.

Fastest way to idle for Steam Cards - Updated 2021 [Steam Idle Master Extended]

is idle master legit?

Don't know about Idle Master, but ASF is, doesn't even require Steam installed.

Like I already wrote the scope of the ASF software is much larger than IM. Although both programs do basically the same the biggest differences are IM needs the Steam client online while ASF has a built in Steam mini-client. Steam doesn't have to be installed for ASF to work. The other big difference, ASF can idle multiple accounts at once. 

This all sounds good in theory and when you have a botnet with 1,000 farming accounts and given the fact that the average time between card drops is about 30 minutes, you can farm 48,000 cards per day.

On the other hand, Idle Master is about 80 to 100 times faster from a single account perspective as it is much easier to use Steam's drop_on_exit bug with Idle Master. I heard rumors that accounts who have refunded a game on Steam are flagged, so no cards will drop in the first two hours. As Idle Master's algorithm can idle 30 games simultaneously it's a huge time saver for the 'refunders' to get over the two hours playtime.

You can watch me here while I drop over 60 trading cards in 20 minutes with Idle Master.


Ban idle master

Hello! Do you have a Steam account and don't want to play every game to get cards? As I understand you! I faced the same problem 2 years ago.

Idle Master can be downloaded from the official website, the installation of the program is rather primitive. Plus, it's completely free. It takes up little space, it eats modestly RAM. Therefore, you can open it and forget, start going about your business.

The interface is nice, you can understand it intuitively. In the settings, you can choose the best card drop for you.

According to Steam rules, cards start to fall after 2 hours in the game. In fact, Steam Idle just winds up time and counts cards. Therefore, up to two hours at the same time, you can run several dozen games (I don’t know for sure, I typed a maximum of 20), and then each one opens individually.

You do not need to install games at all to knock out cards using this program. She will do everything for you. It is important that the program is always running.

Is it possible to get a ban for this? I have been using it for more than two years, so I can say with confidence that you will not be banned for this. On the Steam Community I came across this:

Is it possible to get a VAC ban for using idle master "a? (The software developer answers, I just translated and added a little)
I do not recommend that you run Idle Master when you are simultaneously playing another game that connects to a secure VAC server. This is the only way you can get a VAC ban. Also, the simultaneous launch of the program and another game will slow down the loss of cards. Please close Idle Master if you are going to play on servers with VAC protection (CS GO and other similar Online Games) and it is also better to close other (not online) games, so as not to interfere with the work of the program (so that the cards do not slow down). The Idle Master program never contacts VAC servers by itself and is safe for use in games where VAC anti-cheat is used.

That's all! I talked about the main aspects of the Idle Master program - a program that will knock cards out of games on Steam for you. "

A cozy and massive game store named after Uncle Gabe Parovoy, Steam, has long attracted users with low prices, cloud synchronization, a large selection of games and the ability to buy goods without spending their own, real money at the expense of, in fact, the hero of the article. The current RN FAQ will be about why and how to farm Steam cards using the Idle Master program.

Important note - the Root Nation site is not responsible for the user's actions and the security of his profile on Steam. Everything that you do, you do at your own peril and risk.

First, let's go over the terminology a little. The term "farm" comes from the word "farm" and means purposeful stuffing, accentuated action, getting something in quantities larger than usual. For example, in MMOs, players often farm bosses to get valuable items - that is, they attack the same boss a bunch of times in a row.

Steam Trading Cards are digital items that randomly "drop" from games while this game is running. Note, I did not say "during the passage", this is your first clue for the future. So, we play in some Rocket League, exit it and see three new cards in the inventory. What can you do with them at all?

Well, for starters, sell. They cost little money, from 5 to 15 cents, but from one game can drop from three to six cards. And if you sell all the cards, then in best case you can buy some indie fun at the sale, and that's just for playing the Rocket League. We farm cards from a dozen games, and on sale you can buy Gothic or Fallout 1/2 for the collection. Benefit!

However, selling cards is just one of their functions. The second is crafting (creating) icons. Collecting six / twelve different cards for one game, the account owner can craft them, having received certain goodies, including a badge, a picture-wallpaper for a Steam profile, an emoticon, a discount coupon and experience. Thanks to the latter, the profile level on Steam rises, some new opportunities appear, maximum amount friends, and yes - trading cards are starting to drop a little more often!

Here is an important note - "a little more often" does not mean permanently. If you knocked out three cards out of three possible, you will not get more by playing the game. And in order to collect a set of six cards, you will need to buy the rest on the internal Steam market, it is the Marketplace, or Marketplace. The number of cards varies from game to game, and some of the card packs don't have any at all! You can check this either in the Steam list, filtering out unnecessary ones, or on the game page for this indicator here (see below). If it is not there, there are no cards.

How to farm Steam cards with Idle Master

Further - in fact, a story about how to farm Steam cards. This is done using Idle Master, a tiny piece of software that allows you to fill cards even when you are not in the game. It would seem - how? It's simple, the program launches games "virtually", gives a signal to Steam that they are running, even if they are not. In fact, you can farm the games yourself by simply launching them and minimizing them, but this is not as effective.

However, the safety of Idle Master is not a guarantee of the safety of its counterparts. There are direct competitors doing the same thing, but with either a simplified or a complicated interface. And there may be programs that directly affect the speed or the chance of cards falling out. For these programs I will not say anything, because I do not know either the degree of security they have, or the chance of getting a profile lock.

And one more important point- I do not recommend using Idle Master in parallel with playing VAC protected projects. Anti-cheat will give you a ban without much delay, since an extra program that works with Steam files looks too much like an actively working cheat. For this you will definitely get a ban.

Where to get games for farming Steam cards?

You know how to farm Steam cards. Good. The next question - let's say, purely hypothetically, the farming process itself has begun to bring you pleasure. Where can I get games for this business? Don't buy AAA titles for $ 30 just for three cards of 10 cents each? You can, of course, buy games, farm them a little and get your money back. But this is a) disgusting, and b) it does not pay off on the nerves, and Valve at some point will figure out the scheme and take action. And I guarantee you won't like them.

No, there are sites with game bundles especially for you! For example, about which I write more often than even perhaps necessary. There, for only $ 1, you can get from two or three to five or six games on Steam, from indie titles to the most popular projects. Plus - that dollar may not go into the pockets of the greedy bourgeois from the site (just kidding, I have mad respect for the site and any publisher / developer who cooperates with them), but for charity. Actually, that's why I respect this site.

Less respectful, but more profitable for farming is Bundle Stars - I wrote about it a couple of times too. There are often bundles of 20+ games, mostly indie thrash, but with cards, yes. For example - 23 games for $ 1, and some of the bottom ones are even very good. Not all games have cards, but personally, it's more profitable for me to just buy such a bunch, and then let Idle Master figure it out.

Another important detail on how to farm cards on Steam. This can only be done with Steam games. It seems to be obvious, but bundles often include mobile games, games for PlayStation / Xbox and even games with source code that you need to download exclusively through an internal torrent, say, Humble Bundle, in mdf or iso format. This does not mean that such bundles do not need to be bought - on the contrary, charity after all, but they are useless for the farm.

How to Sell Trading Cards on Steam

How To Farm Steam Cards - You Know It's Time To Sell Them! To do this, go to the "Steam Inventory", select the card you need, remember it basic the price is slightly lower - "From $ 0.04 USD", for example - and press the "Sell" button. A sales window will open, where you will have to enter your own price on the left. Will appear on the right the final the amount that the "Buyer will pay:" together with the commission.

I recommend entering such an amount that the final the amount was equal basic the price we remembered earlier. Enter a little more - and it will be more difficult to sell the card. Enter less - and dumping will occur, which will hit you later, is also not profitable. After listing for sale, go to the application on your smartphone (yes, linking to your smartphone will be required if you want to farm on an ongoing basis) and confirm all transactions. This can be done, by the way, by selecting a bunch of cards at once, and not clicking on each.

Here I will say a couple of words about how to craft from utility cards. In the inventory, just below the image of the highlighted card, which is on the right, there is an item "Icon progress". Click on it and a window opens with all the cards you need. Scroll down the list and you will see that you can not only buy the required cards, but also receive them as a result of barter with other users. This is often more profitable, since you immediately see what you are exchanging your goods for, and you will not lose a couple of cents on buying and selling. Although buying a card for money will be faster.

After purchasing all the necessary cards, the "Create a badge" button will appear. Click on it, all the cards are collected into one beautiful animation and we get an icon, a smiley, a bunch of experience, a wallpaper for Steam and a discount coupon for a random game. You can craft badges several times, just all subsequent ones you will have to buy or exchange completely all the cards, and not just the missing half.

How and why to withdraw money from your Steam wallet

Now I, in order to educate and only him, will tell you how to withdraw money from your account on Steam. Valve, to put it mildly, does not approve of this business, and does not support the following scheme - it is considered almost a black market scheme. Therefore, I in no way agitate you to do just that, but I will tell you only in case you need a blood from your nose for a certain amount of money that is in your Steam wallet. And if need overpowers any fears about the profile and fear of Valve. I repeat - I do not agitate, do not recommend and do not compel to do so. Everything is at your own peril and risk. There will be no illustrations in this paragraph either.

While money cannot be withdrawn directly from the internal Steam wallet, it can be spent on in-game inventory items. The same cards that you initially farmed can be sold to some user directly, and you can get money from him, say, via WebMoney. That is, you transfer the cards to another player, and he sends the finance to you. Trust in the user is already playing a role here - Steam does not give guarantees.

Believe it or not, some people collect virtual Steam Trading Cards. No, really. Part "Why are they doing this?" as inconsequential as the collectible cards themselves. Maybe they want to build a virtual House of cards from virtual collectible cards, to build a showcase of achievements in their profile, or do they just like to look at their favorite metal cards? It doesn't matter, it's all cool. Just like it, right?

The most obvious reason to collect cards is to sell them. People will pay for these cards on the marketplace, even considering that these very cards are dropped out for free during the game, and, strictly speaking, are not physically backed up by anything. Most of the cards are sold for a few cents / piece, so do not expect the opportunity to earn money for a comfortable old age from their sale. However, they literally fall on you as you play, so the large Steam library is quite capable of providing the active gamer with a decent amount of cards in the inventory. The money from their sale may well allow you to buy a decent indie game at full price, or great game on sale.

Or maybe you just enjoy collecting cards? This can have its advantages too: By collecting cards and using them to level up, you increase the likelihood of getting a set of cards, and it also gives you the opportunity to get more money to buy games.

How card farming works with idling

In order for the cards of any game to start falling out, you must spend a certain time in this game (on average, about 2 hours, sometimes less, sometimes more) and then keep this game running until all the remaining cards are dropped. In short, after spending so many hours playing every sale bought and bundled game, how else can you get cards? Card collectors have a choice - they can use the Steam Idle Master or the Archi Steam Farm. These are simple, free programs allow you to log in under your Steam account and tell the Steam servers that you are supposedly playing the game, when in fact you are not.

This allows you to get cards just like you would if you loaded and minimized the game, reeling in the allotted time, only at a lower cost and without the need to launch (and download) the game itself. As you can see, this is not a hack, you just save energy. Steam Idle Master even has a handy counter showing how many cards are still drawn and how long the game's mini-client has been running.

Which utility should you use? You can read the details below, but in short: I recommend the Archi Steam Farm.

P.S. The article was translated and corrected by me. I would be glad to receive your feedback and wishes.
