Uh, this does not look good. Epic launcher might be taking data from users' steam id files, spying on their game playtime and friends lists. https://www.resetera.com/threads/de...llect-your-steam-friends-play-history.105385/ https://metacouncil.com/threads/epic-game-store-spyware-tracking-and-you.766/ "Here's my findings on this topic, I also posted to ResetEra. But I tried to replicate those and found out that Epic Games Launcher on start up searches for Steam install and proceeds to get list of files in your Steam Cloud (this includes mostly game saves for every user that has logged in on your PC) Steam Cloud is stored under userdata\[account id]\ if you wanna check It will also create encrypted copy of config\localconfig.vdf. This file contains your steam friends, their name history (groups you're part of, are considered "friends"). It seems friends might be used for friends suggestions, but I don't even use that feature and it collects more than that. While it's called "localhistory" it is synced from cloud It will read, encrypt and then write copy to: C:\ProgramData\Epic\SocialBackup\RANDOM HEX CODE_STEAM ACCOUNT ID.bak It will also keep historical entries there."
