Users

Set up additional user accounts for other users to use the device with personalised settings, such as email accounts, wallpaper preferences, and more. Following types of user accounts are available.

• User: This account allows users to access their own apps and content, and customise the device settings that affect all accounts.

• Restricted profile: A restricted account can only access the apps and content allowed by the owner account, and cannot use the services that require logging in.
