[IMPORTANT] Steam Account Hijacking NOTICE


Recommended Posts

My steam account was just hijacked, anyone that receives this link DO NOT OPEN IT, it will take over your steam account like it has mine. My account was hijacked and they took everything, changed the email and all. When you log in they ask for a code to verify, this code from your mobile authentication gives them full access to your steam. DONT GO TO THIS LINK, watch out for your mates as well, I got this from an old mate!

idk why anyone would ever trust a sketchy link sent to them by some random and then proceed to type their steam details and mobile authenticator into this random website.

It appeared to be a legit steam login, I thought if you logged in with steam then 3rd party things can't get those details, but silly me didn't look at the URL and it was taken

steam could just make it so mobile authenticator code changes on login, easy fix.

Today is a good morning, the glorious steam has uncovered and returned my account to me in one piece. It turns out when they took my account they messaged a number of people on my friends such as Welshy, but he is a smart man so it didn't worry him. But yeah it is an easy trap to fall into if your a silly person especially (like myself).

A good way to tell if the steam login is legit is to check where the information is sending to via f12 or something like that or simply checking the url of the page you are putting your details in. It should ALWAYS say Steamcommunity in the url as the domain.

You got your account back that fast!? It's taken steam support about 3 years for them to do that for me for one of my other accounts >:C

Technology these days my friend, they get quicker and quicker by the year. Next year it will probably only be an hour.

But yeh, I submitted the ticket at like 9 last night and it was all fixed by 1 this morning so fairly fast.
