12. Accounts, Firewalls, and Security > Setting Up the Login Process

Setting Up the Login Process

Once you’ve set up more than one account, the dialog box shown in Figure 12-1 appears whenever you turn on the Mac, whenever you choose →Log Out, or whenever the Mac logs you out automatically (Logout Options). But a few extra controls let you, an administrator, set up either more or less security at the login screen—or, put another way, build in less or more convenience:

Open System Preferences, click Accounts, and then click the Login Options button (Figure 12-11). Here are some of the ways you can shape the login experience for greater security (or greater convenience).

  • Automatically log in as: This option eliminates the need to sign in at all. It’s a timesaving, hassle-free arrangement if only one person uses the Mac, or if one person uses it most of the time.
