How to Create a New User on a Mac
If you have multiple people in your household that share the same Mac, or want to create a New User for a temporary guest that includes more access to the macOS like saving documents, you'll want to create a New User.
Creating a new user protects the data and information on your user account from being tampered with, accidentally deleted, or accessed by someone you'd rather not see that information. While Macs always come with a Guest User, Guest Users have so few capabilities that creating a new user may be necessary. After all, Guest Users can't even properly save information for later access.
So, if you need to create a new user for a friend, child, family member, or guest, follow the steps in this guide so that you can keep your information and data safe, and they can do what they need to do!
