Hi guys! I'm a bit of a newbie here. I often read the forums, but this is my first post. I'm a Mac user for more than 5 years and whenever I have a problem or a question I can usually find the answer on my own. However, I can't find the answer to what seems like a simple question to me. Basically I'd like to know how secure are the files in my OSX account. Throughout the time I've had a Mac I've always had just one account on it - mine. Now I'd like to create another account for occasions when a friend/colleague would like to use my computer. I know about the standard Guest account in OSX, but that's limited just to the use Safari. So I decided to create another regular account for guests. I'd like to know whether the other users have a way to gain access to the files and folders in my account? I guess they can't, because I assume that's the way OSX is designed. But I remember that, in Windows, a user can go into the system folders and look at and open another user's files and folders. Can that happen in OSX? If it matters I'm on OS10.9.5 (Mavericks) and I use an admin account (since it's the only one in the system other than the Guest one). Btw I also use FileVault, so I believe I have the whole SSD encrypted.
