In the age of digital content, protecting your Steam account is more important than ever. That’s why Valve has unveiled new security tech for their service, Steam Guard.
This new upgrade will lock specific Steam options to one PC. Account management won’t be possible on other PCs unless the user’s approval is given. If anyone attempts to log in via an unauthorized PC, the main account will be alerted. It uses Intel Identity Protection Technology to generate a new numerical password every 30 seconds. That password integrates into the processor functionality that previously required a separate card or key fob.
If you know what any of that meant, then Steam Guard is probably great news for you.
