Lutris want me to enter my credentials for steam, gog.com, etc.

There's always a risk when you enter your credentials into any program. You're always making a judgment call about how much you trust the software you are installing.

For Lutris, you shouldn't need to enter your credentials if you decide you don't trust the program with your credentials. That just helps you sync the games from your accounts instead of adding them manually.

But yes, Lutris should be safe.
