    Hello,
    I am on Yosemite and wanted to know what accounts are on the mac. I typed dscl . list /Users I grep ^_.* and discovered the following;

    • daemon - is this the admin?
    • Guest - obvious
    • Me - obvious
    • nobody – what is this?
    • root - obvious

    I couldn't anything with Google but then I couldn't phrase the right question.
    :apple: experts please help!

    Nobody, unknown, root and daemon are all typical users in unix/OS X. There's nothing to worry about.
