I recently built my own PC and was looking forward to buying/playing games on steam, however, these past few days on this subreddit I've been seeing a lot of people getting their accounts hacked. I've seen posts where their accounts have been hacked even though they didn't download anything, click on a link, or just simply played a game of CSGO and got hacked somehow. Some people even said they had safeguard and still managed to get hacked even though their steam account and email have different passwords. So I'm wondering if steam is even safe because I don't want to spend my money and then have my account hacked and lose everything.
Edit: What also scares me is that I've also read that Steams customer support is horrible and people have locked their accounts or locked them themselves and Summited a ticket but never got a response.
