Chapter 20. Multiple Users & their Homes > Limit a User’s Access

Limit a User’s Access

Simple Finder is not something you would use for yourself, but you might apply it to another user of your Mac. It limits what the other user has access to. Previously, it was possible for you to limit a user from getting at files on your main hard disk, but if you had other partitions, another user could access (or destroy) just about anything on those other partitions. Simple Finder seriously limits what the other user can even see—you have total control over what she can access, as you can see below.


The three folders in the Dock are Applications, Documents, and Shared. See the tip about the Shared folder on the following page.
