1. DONT EVER TELL ANYBODY YOUR ACCOUNT NAME , EVEN IF THEY WANNA BE ON YOUR FRIENDS. DONT!

2. Make sure your password isnt short , cause people can guess easy

3. Make sure your secret answer is long and hard to remember , cause people can go through your account that way.

4. If you ever stumble accross a guy that he says he works for steam, dont believe him cause nobody that works at steam will never ask you for your user name and password.

5. DONT ACCEPT RANDOM FRIEND REQUEST ,


I think thats all I know , hope this helps guys!

They can find out the account names easily enough, I think. But good advice aside from that.

1st, of all. I did not do any of those stuff.
2nd, my password is impossible to guess since I'm Asian. :P
3rd, my secret question is probably the hardest.

EDIT: My password is like 20 characters I swear.

I'm fairly certain another Asian could guess it just fine? Like EnJay was saying?

Ah, nice. I'd recommend (If you haven't already), changing your pass, your recovery question, and switch the account to a different email address.

I think a better title would be How not to get "hacked" on Steam but good advice regardless.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Did that and made like a Document. I typed every of my email, password, etc.

And printed it and kept it in a safe place in my house. :P

I didn't save it in my computer though.
My steam password is IMPOSSIBLE to guess. Like, 20-40 characters.

I believe your spelling of shenanigans is wrong. It is shananagans.

Google Failed
When I right clicked your spelling of shenanigans Google came up with the following spelling suggestions:
manageableness
mismanagement
micromanagement
septuagenarian
intragenerational

I have absolutely no comment for that.
