Can I have multiple user accounts in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ? If so, how can I do it?

1 Answer 1


Go to User Accounts under System Settings and click the + button placed in the left down corner.

  • To do that, you may need to unlock first. See right top corner.

You can also create in terminal. (Ctrl + Alt + T)

sudo useradd UserNameHere
sudo passwd UserNameHere <<enter>>
