Valve adds "Trust Mode" to combat cheaters in CS:GO

Valve has officially added “Trusted Mode” to the live servers of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The beta branch had been live for a little over a week before it was officially pushed.

The mode was created as another tool to utilize in an attempt to combat cheating. Players will need to enable the mode which restricts third-party applications and software from interacting with CS:GO. If you fail to enable it, you’ll be unable to play matchmaking and utilize other areas of the game.

Applications and software must have their drivers digitally signed by an Authenticode signature in order to be used.

You can read the update notes here:

[Trusted Mode]
– Players now launch CS:GO in Trusted mode by default
— While in Trusted mode, third party software will be blocked from interacting with CS:GO
— To allow third party software to interact with CS:GO, you can start the game with the –untrusted launch option. Note that in this case your Trust score may be negatively affected.
— A backwards compatibility label “” is temporarily available for players experiencing difficulty launching the latest version of the game.
– If you are a third party developer, all of your DLLs that interact with CS:GO must be digitally signed.
— If your customers would like to use third party software that is not digitally signed, they can start the game with the –insecure launch option. Note that they will not be able to join VAC servers with this option.

– Fixed a regression to reenable streams in the “Watch tab”
