Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

Multiple user accounts

Your device supports multiple user accounts. The user who sets up the device for the first time becomes the owner of the device. Only the owner can manage the accounts of other users.

Find and tap Settings > System > Advanced > Multiple users > Add user, then the owner creates two types of accounts:

  • Regular User: This account type is suitable for someone who regularly uses your device.
  • Guest User: Enable the guest account option for someone who just wants to use your device temporarily.


Some features are only available to the owner. For example, updating software or transferring data. These features are not appeared in the menu when logging in Regular User or Guest User.

To switch between multiple user accounts

  1. Drag the status bar downwards using two fingers then tap (User icon).
  2. Tap the icon representing the user account that you want to switch to. The lock screen for that user account appears.
