My roommate's 6 year-old daughter likes using my phone, but she's autistic and doesn't understand not to mess with things in other people's games, so I'd like to make an account for her so she can play anything she wants. I've looked up tutorials telling me how to add a user, but the accounts button doesn't seem to be where they say it should be. Has Verizon disabled this feature?
We understand how important it is to keep your saved game data secure when other people are using your device. At this time, it looks like the ability to add multiple user profiles is not supported. What version of Android are you currently running on the device?

I have the same issue. I can't protect my daughter's phone without being able to create a user that doesn't have admin rights. I don't understand why verizon would block something so important, common, and useful. If this does not change I'll move all 5 of my devices to another carrier.
How do you know it was Verizon Wireless that blocked this functionality and not the manufacturer of the device?
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
The T-Mobile version has it. I had one for a short while, but I don't know if it was removed with the oreo update. I can probably check at work in a couple days. Currently on vacation.
hello unfortunately this feature is blocked or disabled either by Verizon or by our manufacturer I know T-Mobile and Sprint has it but I am not sure who else... it is not disabled in oreo as I know l. would be nice to have this feature.
