Although I rarely pay more than $5 for any one game, the overall value of my account at this point is probably close to $2500. If someone were to guess or hack my password and lock me out, I'd be forever out of all that money and those games and have to start over. I'm smart enough to have a unique and impossible-to-guess password for my account of course, but it does happen. My son has had his Steam account hacked/stolen on multiple occasions in the past, and while I suspect he's just been conned by a smooth social engineer into giving up his password each time (he swears this isn't the case, but I can't figure out how else it may keep happening), either way it results in a total loss of your library. And Steam makes it notoriously impossible to actually get a hold of anyone at the company in order to get your account back should this happen.
Steam uses two factor authentication when logging into a different computer.
