In Admin section under Security and Moderation, you will find this checkbox setting, but;

Disable administration security - This disables the additional password check for the administration section. This is not recommended!

Or, you could approach whoever coded your Steam login for SMF - and inform them of an apparent bug in the design.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
