Mac tip for newbies: guest accounts

There are times when a family member or a friend asks us to let them use our Macs to check their emails or find something on Google. There’s really nothing to worry about unless you’re currently working on a project of some sort and they accidentally close the application or window you were using. Oops… Sorry?

A way to this avoid this potential nightmare is to setup a guest account for them to use. The Mac Observer’s Jeff Gamet has a guide on how to set up a guest account on your Mac. The guest account has options that limit the apps and files a guest user can have access to. You can also turn on parenteral controls to limit the sites that can be accessed.

Using a guest account for your friends and family is one way to protect yourself from losing those valuable and important files that you have in your Mac. A must-do tip.
