Are you wondering how do I go offline on steam? It’s a really easy step and one which can easily be turned on and off with the click of a button. Whether it’s to avoid that pesky friend or just because you don’t want someone seeing you online, turning steam into offline mode is easy. Before we begin, it is worth noting that having the mobile app open can cause problems and you should always check the status on the mobile phone app after making the below steps.

There are 2 really simple ways to go Offline on steam and in this article we will show you how.

Step 1 – How to go offline on steam? 

The easiest way to go offline in steam is to open up your steam application to the point where you are staring at the store page. Next, go to the top left corner of the screen where it says “Steam”, the second option down from the top is called “Go Offline”. Click this and steam will ask to restart. Once restarted you will now be in offline mode, to go back you can either do the same or follow step number 2.

Step 2 – Going offline with steam friends

The second option to go offline in steam is through the “friends & chat” option. Once you are on the main steam hope page, navigate yourself to the bottom right corner of the application and click on “Friends & Chat”.

In the top left corner of the screen that pops up will be your Steam name, picture and avatar frame. Next to your name, you will see a drop-down arrow. Click on this and select the “Offline” option. This will again ask you to restart steam. It is worth noting that you can also go invisible which will keep your steam in online mode but you won’t show it to other people/friends. As easy as that you can now go offline on steam.
