I have an admin account which I don't use and a 'normal' account that is used for everyday use. This is primarily to stop me (or any other user in my household who knows my password) from installing anything. The only person who knows the admin credentials is me and they are only used on that admin account.Hi guys,
Do most of you log in as admin or do you prefer to have another non-admin account set up when you're using your Mac?
Simply paranoia, not necessarily well-founded. I've used Macs for a long time, but didn't really know much about administering them. I've also used Unix-like OSes in the workplace for a long time, so I was equating it more to having a root vs. non-root account. Anyway, the difference is having "sudo" privilege or not. (I'm not really a unix admin either).Thanks for the replies folks.
If some of you are the only people using the computer, why do you use the guest account rather than having just one admin account?
