TLDR:  
In Steam, click File -> Settings.  Look at "Contact Email:".  If your email address is followed by (unverified), click to verify it.

Apologies if you've seen this already, but someone linked me to
this forum post claiming you're steam account is easier to hack if you haven't verified your email within Steam.  Mine said unverified, I couldn't be bothered to read all the links in the forum post so I decided to do it anyway.  It took about 10 seconds in total.

your steam account is as easy to hack as your login/password is
linking your email with account will make it much easier to prove your account belongs to you if it was stolen, UNLESS you use your email as login and same password for both.. then your f***** Wink

When did they do that?, I was playing with my steam settings 4 days ago and I verified my email, but I don't remember seeing this before .
