Is it worth it to have an epic account for the free games? Is it true there was a massive user data leak?
Hard to say from one side there's the thinh with the data leck. Don't really know much about it, but that's something you have to decide if you want to risk it. And how bad it would be for you if that happened to you. Like do you do illegal things on your PC, buy things from the darknet, files nobody should ever see etc. I for my part don't give a damn who's spying on me as long it's not the cops haha. Probably not the smartest way to think about that theme I guess.
And also you can just create an epic account without downloading the launcher or anything and just add the free games every week to your account. That's who I do.
But in the end it's up to you to decide. How important is your onlinedata to you?
My best advice that you do like at least 10min of research yourself and then decide what you do.
