Hi

I am Vinod. I will try my best to help you resolve this issue.

You need to go to system preferences - users and groups and can enable the guest account from there.

Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, and then click Users & Groups.
Click the lock icon to unlock it, and then type an administrator name and password.
Select Guest User in the list of accounts.
To let a guest user log in to the computer, select “Allow guests to log in to this computer.”

This link will walk you through th steps if you need additional security set up.

Let me know if you find any difficulty.

Thank you
Vinod

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
