    1. Hi,
      Thanks for writing us.
      You just go to Settings > Users and change the value of a key.

      The key is guest_user_enabled under the table global found at /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db.
      This database belongs to Settings Storage app. Its current value would be 1.

      Change it to 0 using adb with the command: adb shell settings put global guest_user_enabled 0

      After changes done, just restart your phone.

      1.
