Epic Store doesn't make you validate!!

Epic Store doesn't make you validate!!

From a Source on Reddit, someone said "I found fraudulent accounts had been created using two different email addresses of mine on the Epic Store when attempting to create an account. Had them deactivated, changed the passwords on the email accounts, checked my bank and credit card statements for any fraudulent activity but everything seemed ok. I found it weird that searching back through my emails I had no record of any validation emails sent to me for setting up a new account on the Epic store.

So I created a new account using a third address, and yep, Epic does not have the most basic step of an account validation email when setting up a profile. I cannot believe a mutli-billion dollar company doesn't even have that basic of a security step for their customers.

The worst part is that even having those fraudulent accounts deactivated doesn't solve anything unless I make burner profiles to squat on my own email addresses without someone creating another account using them since they don't have to validate it.

I actually wanted Epic to challenge Steam in the hopes it would shake Valve out of the complacency they've exhibited for years as the undisputed top dog of digital distribution, but there's no way I'll ever put payment information into an app this lax in user security.

Edit: Thanks for the gold, stranger! I wish my and other gamers' digital peace of mind being violated by a giant corporation wasn't the cost."
