In addition to the initial User Account created during the setup process, macOS provides the option to create additional User Accounts on Mac, with and without admin privileges.
Create User Accounts On Mac
In addition to Admin and Main User Account, it is important that you create another User Account on your Mac to deal with the possibility of being locked out of the Main User Account.
Another reason for creating an additional User Account on Mac would be to allow children or others in the family to use the computer, without being able to make any unwanted changes.
