Browsers and websites have programs and systems in place to help protect people for phishers, malware bugs and more, yet many online services are providing additional security to ensure the peace of mind of their customers; enter Steam Guard. Created by Steam, an entertainment platform that runs on PC, Mac and Linux, Steam Guard prompts people who are logging on from an unrecognized device to provide additional authorization.

Although there is no guarantee that Steam Guard will provide complete protection against cyber attacks of any kind, it does show the extra steps businesses are taking to address the issue of hackers. A growing problem throughout the online community, it is important for websites to take extra measures to provide the best service they can.
