User profiles enable you to share your device with friends and family. Each user profile has its own space on the hard drive for personalized home screens, accounts, and its own apps and settings. This is similar to how multiple users work on macOS or a Microsoft Windows PC.

  • Open the Settings app.
  • Select System
  • Tap Multiple Users
  • Toggle Use multiple users to on.
  • Tap Add user.
  • A pop-up will appear asking you to confirm. Tap OK.
  • A pop-up will now appear asking you to set up the user. Select Set up now and run through the process. You must sign in or create a Google account and choose a lock PIN or fingerprint

That’s it! You can now customize the user profile as you like.

Note: You can add as many user profiles as you want.

  1. *If you want to switch users, simply do the following:
  • Open Settings > System > Multiple Users. You can also access this by swiping down from the top of the screen to access Quick Settings and tapping the person icon at the bottom-right of the screen
  • Tap Switch to … for the different user you want to switch to.

If you no longer need an additional user profile, you can delete it by doing the following:

  • Open Settings > System > Multiple Users.
  • Tap the profile you want to delete.
  • Tap Delete.
Guest Mode is similar to adding a new Android user account but offers a more temporary solution and the same security protections.
To enable Guest Mode:
  • Open Settings > System > Multiple Users.
  • Select Add guest or Guest (if it has already been created).
  • Your phone will automatically set up the guest account with default apps enabled.
Whether you’re sharing a tablet with family members or require multiple team members to have their permissions and user settings on one device, multiple user accounts are the way to go. With this tutorial, you should be able to create and manage a new user account easily.
