How do I make the sections un-numbered?

I'm using \documentclass[12pt]{article}.

All my section titles get numbered. How can I make them un-numbered?

    To disable numbering document-wide, use \setcounter{secnumdepth}{<x>}, where <x> is -1 for disabling numbering of part and lower levels, 0 for section and lower levels, and so on … – Qrrbrbirlbel Nov 11 '12 at 18:53
  • To supplement @Qrrbrbirlbel's comment/answer, to produce an individual section that is not numbered use \section* instead of \section. – Andrew Swann Nov 11 '12 at 19:02
  • Correction: 0 is for chapter (that doesn't exist in article) and 1 is for section. – Qrrbrbirlbel Nov 11 '12 at 19:02

You can use the starred versions of the sectioning commands :

\section*{My section}
\subsection*{My subsection}
\subsubsection*{My subsubsection}
