Hi, I’m thinking about adding other user accounts to my Mac and there’s an option for group accounts? Can anyone tell me what group user accounts mean please?
I plan to let my family and friends use my Mac and it would be nice for them to have their own Accounts. I know how to add and manage other accounts but I’m curious about the ‘Group’ Option.
To create a group, you would first create each individual user account. Then you can create a group and add some of those user accounts to it. This could make it slightly easier to do something like grant access to a shared folder to all members of the group at once.
But in your situation, it probably isn't useful. Just create a user account for each individual that will be using your Mac.
So what other Uses can I use with Group user accounts?
Caiden: What are you looking to do? Most Mac users, myself included, don't use groups at all.
