Chapter 19. Working with User Accounts > Creating and Configuring User Accounts

Creating and Configuring User Accounts

If you share your Mac with others, you can choose to create a user account for each person. Or, you can create a user account that several people share. This can be useful if there are people who use your Mac but don’t necessarily need private folders or individual customization. For example, if you share your Mac with children, you might want to create a single user account for them to use.

The good news is that three of the four types I described earlier are created and configured using the steps you’ll find in this section. (The root account is an animal of an entirely different type; you learn how to work with the root account later in the chapter.)
