System administrators and network engineers often receive requests from people in other departments for access to the detailed network data that is available in LANGuardian -- HR managers want access to information about users visiting prohibited websites, finance managers want access to information about which departments use the most bandwidth, and so on.

With LANGuardian user accounts you can give users access to the information they need, without compromising the stability or security of your LANGuardian system. You can customize the reports and dashboards each user can see. That way, individual users can see only the information that interests them and that they are allowed to see.

To add a user account to LANGuardian:

1. Click on the Settings icon in the LANGuardian menu bar and select Configuration.
2. On the LANGuardian Configuration page, scroll to the System section.
3. Click Add/Edit LANGuardian user accounts.
4. Click Add new user
5. Enter a username and password for the new user and click Add User.

Once the new account user is created, you will see the user name listed in the LANGuardian Accounts page. On this page, you can edit the lists of reports and dashboards that the user will be allowed to see, and you can delete accounts that are no longer needed.

For detailed information about all aspects of using LANGuardian, take a look at the LANGuardian Administration and User Guide
