Steam
Steam accounts are the essential to your gaming on your computer. But they're fragile if not properly secured.

Steam Guard
Enabling Steam Guard provides so much more security for your account. It ensures that it sends you a code to either your email or phone app to ensure you're the one really logging in.

Look at their instructions here - https://help.steampowered.com/en/faqs/view/06B0-26E6-2CF8-254C

Scam Protection
If someone messages you on Steam saying something like the following:
"I reported your account to steam admin"
"I am steam admin/staff"
"Free Game/Items/Keys"
This is an instant Red Flag🚩.

To protect yourself never login from a URL given to you and never give out your password.

Free Games can be gifted to you and Ban requests are handled inside of steams support system.

Discord
We use discord for everything, talking with friends, playing games, and so much more. But one account breach and they can ruin a lot. Lets make sure this doesn't happen.

Two Factor Authentication
Discord has a very nice guide on this already! You can find it here - https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/articles/219576828-Setting-up-Two-Factor-Authentication

Phising Evasion
Bad people like to give suspect links and may make you give out your credentials by complete accident.

So what can you look out for?
Well make sure it really is the link. For Example google.com, it can be faked by using an i like googie.com and make it a capital when they send the link. Its something you have to watch for heavily.

The Basics to Stay Safe
Do not Click on links that are impersonating Discord
Discord Gifts are entirely embedded you do not need to goto an external link to get the reward.
Do not sign into Discord via Browser
Lets say you get a link and its wants you to sign in via Discord, that would place your account at risk.
