What Is Group User Accounts?

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.
