Steam Guard Beta

Valve's just announced Steam Guard system is now in beta. Word is: "As a Steam account holder, you can now take advantage of this additional level of account security, further prohibiting others from gaining access to your account. As a beta participant, once you've verified your email address with Steam, Steam Guard becomes available for your use and is enabled for your Steam account by default." To demonstrate the security this provides, Gabe Newell gives out his username and password at Cebit (thanks VG247 via Reddit).

Wow...Steam is going to have better security than online banking. As I understand it even when it goes live you have a choice to use it or not...enable it if you are just going to be at home then disable it when you want to use a different computer.

If you have it enabled and your computer crashes then that's no different from someone (in this case God) hijacking your account...just contact Steam support and they will fix things.
