You create a guest user when someone is visiting for a while and needs access to a Windows, or MAC computer, or even their tablet / iPod!
The guest account can be activated under Windows, for example, so that your visitor can use it. This protects your private files and system settings cannot be changed with this account. It is not necessary that you create a guest user account for every person who works on the computer, a guest account is sufficient.
Technical - the guest account under Windows:
►► Set up Windows 10 guest account, (create account)?
►► Make Windows 10 standard user account as guest user
►► Manage, add or remove users in Windows 8.1 / 10
Technical - the guest account under Apple's MAC / iPad:
►► Set up Mac OS guest users!
►► iPad: Are multiple user accounts possible
►► Multiple users on one iPad !
No password is required for one of the operating systems when the guest logs on. When you log in for the first time, Windows and MAC take some time to set up this user account or to prepare settings for the guest account.
