Recover Guest login

I recently installed UbutnuMATE 17.04 on a Dell Inspiron P24T and love it. Everything was going smoothly until a recent update through the updater seems to have lost my guest login. How can I get this back? Thank you.

Thank you for the link. Exactly the concerns I’ve always had about the guest session.

As far as I can tell this problem is easily circumvented by using the “Encrypt Your Home Folder” option though.
But to be fair, any guest session on any distro is a problem anyway due to privilege escalation vulnerabilities such as Rowhammer.

Using this feature to allow trusted friends to try out Ubuntu MATE. This solution perfectly answers my question. Thank you,
