Steam Account Credentials Expired!?

Hello everyone,

Just as the title states, upon logging into Steam today, I encountered another pop-up window that said 'Steam Account Credentials Expired Please Enter Password'. Something along those lines. I was a bit confused but it seemed legit because I launched through Steam right at computer startup. I input my password and everything seemed fine.

After, I searched it up on Google and there were many threads about the correlation between the message and account hijacking. This is what I'm a bit worried about.

I scanned using an anti-virus and Malwarebytes and everything came up clean. I also changed my password for Steam and my email tied to it.

Should I be worried about anything?

Thanks!

They make you change your password every now and then. Only happened to me once in 5 years anyway so...
