    I wonder if someone can help me. I Have multiple users on my computer. I Have just realised if you do a search within anyone of these users you can search everyone else documents pics and private stuff. Does anyone know how to turn this off - otherwise is there any use having passwords ???

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you add the files/folders to Spotlight's Privacy settings within those user accounts (and then lock the Privacy settings)?

    Is there an option somewhere in the Accounts Preferences to prevent searching of other users files?

    Or you could always use File Vault.
