Enhanced Security for your Steam Account

Quote:
Steam has introduced email verification to further protect your Steam Account. Once you've verified your address, email confirmation will be required to change critical Steam Account information like your password, contact information, and secret question/answer.

To verify your address, visit Steam Settings and click the "Verify email address" button. You will then get an email message from Steam Support asking you to verify your email address with the click of a custom link.

Yeah... I remember wondering why they didn't do this in the first place back when I signed up. Still, better late than never.

I think my account was almost hacked, because it said my playtime on Day of Defeat Source was like 2 hours one week, but I didn't have it installed! :O Thankfully I changed my password right away.

It was about time !
Steam accounts always were easy to change when you had the password.
But if you're using the same password for your e-mail as your steam ID then you're still in problems, lol.
