If you want to have multiple users on your Android, this system has an oh-so-simple way to do this and we will show you how. If you share your device with others, then creating separate user accounts aims to keep your profile private. For this reason, setting up multiple users on your Android is very useful for Tablets, rather than for mobiles, as these generally only operate on one account.

Next, click on the option Accounts > Add account. Then you need to choose the app you want to create a new account for.

Once you have clicked on the desired account, the phone will ask you if you want to add an existing account or create a new one.

Select New.

To switch between accounts, click on the icons at the bottom of the Android's lock screen. You can also log off from an account by activating the lock screen.
