Types of Users
As with most operating systems, with Mac OS X there are three different kinds of users:
Now that you have created the users, you can control who can auto login or whether everyone is prompted for a password. It is usually much safer and more secure to force everyone to login using his or her password. However, if this is your new iMac at home, or if you are the only one with keys to the office, you may want your Mac to boot and automatically login as you. All login and auto-login controls are in System Preferences, under the Login button. The Login Items tab opens the window where you set the applications that open on Login. By clicking the Login Window tab, you will be shown options for Login such as auto-login and how the login window will appear, either with the names displayed or not.
