Video games on PC wouldn’t be the same without this enormous platform that, to a great extent, could be said to be a kind of social network. However, on many occasions we simply want to appear offline or offline on Steam to focus solely on playing without anyone bothering us. How can we achieve it? We teach you how to configure Steam so that nobody bothers us on Windows, Mac and mobile devices.

Set up steam account offline or offline

With so many friends on Steam, it is very possible that when we are connected they start talking to us or invite us to different games to play online. If we want not to be disturbed, we must appear offline or offline on Steam, this is very easy to achieve.


The first thing we will do is open Steam on our computer and log in if necessary. Next, we will click on the “Friends” tab in the menu at the top of the window.

Set offline mode in Steam for Windows.

Now we are going to have to choose the “Offline” or “Offline” option to appear offline.

From now on we will appear offline for everyone on Steam. However, with this option activated, we will not be able to chat with anyone; If we want nobody to know that we are online and only talk to a few people, we can choose the “Invisible” option instead of “Offline”.
