Valve says it doesn’t want Epic – or anyone – messing with Steam user data
The Epic Games store data privacy issue is rumbling on: Steam maker Valve has suggested it’s miffed Epic’s launcher copies Steam user data – and it’s declared it’s going to investigate.
Epic has had to respond to concern about what the Epic launcher is doing under the hood with Steam-related stuff on people’s PCs after Epic’s app was found to be copying a Steam user data file called localconfig.vdf.
Epic has confirmed the launcher makes an encrypted local copy of your localconfig.vdf Steam file, but insisted it only imports your Steam friends with your explicit permission.
