Remove guest user login mac

Just unlock, turn the Guest User off, re-lock. Nov 15, 7: This is just BS!

Turning Guest user "off" just means Guest users can no longer login, but it still appears on the logon screen. Before High Sierra you could click the minus sign and the guest account would delete. Unfortunately, this no longer works. I agree with "tomcib" above and I don't share my "personal" [Mac] computer and would like to just delete the guest user.

I wish Apple would just fix it and make it work again. Nov 24, Nov 28, 2: Nov 28, 7: This just hides that fact that you quite possibly have the root user enabled, likely without any password. Communities Contact Support. Sign in. Browse Search. Ask a question.

Very different things. Yes,if you follow the instructions it disables the "Guest User" form appearing on the login screen ,which that is the question. Wasn't that the question? Even though enabling the root user may disable the guest account as well I didn't try myself , this is in this case merely a side effect. Enabling the root user has its own issues, I wouldn't recommend to do this only you really need the functionality. I was talking about enabling the root user, i was talking about disabling.
