I don't see it. Is SG still in beta or went live?

It is live.

Were your turning Steam Guard off temporarily or do you not plan to use it in general?

Steam > Settings > Manage Steam Guard Account Security > Disable Steam Guard.

I'm curious though, why would you want to disable it?

Thumbs down Maybe because its annoying

I have no idea that I actually turned Steam Guard on. No one asked me if I wanted it. Now I have a computer that I can't use because of this steam guard crap. I appreciate you trying to protect my account but come on, I should be asked first before you shove it down my throat.

I'm glad I found this... now I can access my games again!

I wish Steam would stop changing things. Every time they do, I end up wrestling with their tech support instead of playing the games I paid for.

Im extremely irritated that they started enabling this on people's accounts without asking them. I did NOT want Steam guard and it was enabled on me anyway without ever asking me.

I'm not happy about this as well (it being enabled without asking).

No doubt. It wasn't advertised as default or mandatory. A minor frustration, but i hope they change it in the future.

Steam Guard is on as a default setting.

Valve wanted it that way.

You can turn it off.

Why you would want to make your valuable account *LESS* secure is anyone's guess though...
