In art school one of the things they try to impress over and over again is that no one wants to steal your idea. And even if the wanted to, no one can do the thing the way you can.
It's one thing if you just don't trust the people you might be in a crit group. That's a fair position, and a lot of writers (and other creative folk) are very selective in who they share early versions of their work with, for a variety of reasons.
Honestly, the thing you have to worry about most isn't that people will want to steal your idea, but that once it's finished and published no one will read it and no one will care. THAT is what you should be worried about.
