I've had Steam for a good while now and i've always set it to remember my password so I log into automatically. However last week I was oddly asked to input my log-in details, which I did.

I clicked "Remember my password" so I log in automatically again. However just now i've been told to enter my log-in details again. I haven't done anything for this to occur.

The russians have taken a hold of your PC, and they need 3 logins to capture your password. Do not use steam the next 2 weeks! The fix and a security upgrade is being worked on right now.

Any serious replies as to why this is occuring? How is "remember my password" not working?

I'd heard a few friends had this happen, the only thing they really had in common was a viable inventory and no extra verification on account. So it may be a "security" thing.

Are you talking about the browser or the client?

The client itself. I have Steam Authenticator set up.

If that's thaat would explain why I sometimes get this. I sometimes use my phone's hotspot, which obviously changes my IP.
