Thanks for the quick answer.
Not on my PC right now, but it seems different from what I thought.
Since it needs steam guard I think it will be hard to find some random people to lend me the Batman games.

Random people wouldn't share their account with you anyway.

I thought it would be simpler, line turning one game "public" to someone on your friend list.

Never had the intention to enter in someone account anyway.

I was only trying to play some Batman for free.

Basically how it works is you have to log into the account on the device you want authorized. This means either they give you their credentials so you can log in on your computer to authorize it, or they use something like Team Viewer to control your computer remotely and log in themselves.

Team Viewer is how I've done it with people. However they hold the account owner responsible for any damage done by whoever is using it. I'm not entirely sure just what someone can do to get you in trouble, but you can have your sharing ability permanently stripped from you.

Also it's limited in other ways as well, least of all not every game can be shared. You can not play a shared game if the account owner is playing a game, and if you are playing a shared game and they start one, you're kicked out in five minutes. This can be side stepped by running Steam in offline mode however.

It's not meant to be "Share games with random internet guy". It's meant for friends and family. People you actually know and trust. If you can play batman for free, why would you ever buy it? I'm sure that's what the publishers are thinking.

Think of this as a enhanced demo.

I can play the game when my friend is offline, but when he is on I'll have to leave the game, in some point I will be tempted to buy the game.

Yes, that's the general idea. Let me repost the part I was trying to emphasize.
