Chapter 20. Multiple Users & their Homes > Advantages of having Multiple Users

Advantages of having Multiple Users

First, let me explain the concept and advantages of having multiple users set up on your Mac so you can decide if you need or want to create other users. You already have one user, you, which was automatically created when you first turned on your Mac and went through the setup process.

You might not have noticed that you are a “user” because Apple sets a default so when you turn on your Mac, you are automatically “logged in” without having to type in a password. Once you have other users set up, you can change this default so everyone must log in with a password. If others use your Mac only occasionally, like your grandkids, you can set it to automatically let you in daily; then when the kids come over, all you have to do is log out, which means they must then log in with their own settings and yours will be protected. I’ll explain how to do that—it’s so easy.
