zWe all know that a tablet is shared by family or friends and this is why sometimes we need to create multiple accounts for them. Each user can customize screens, applications, settings and other things which suits him the best. Users will be shown on the lock screen and they will have their own image. With a simple tap on the wright image, an user will access its screen.

  • Tap Set up now if the user is available and ask him to set up the Google Account details. If it isn’t available, tap Not now.

How to modify user information

Use the users screen to modify user information.

  • Tap the user name and the image beside the local profile to change the users picture.
  • To change the nickname, you will have to tap on Nickname.

How to delete an user

  • First, you will have to access the users screen.
  • Then, you will need to tap the Trash icon beside the user’s name.
