Hi, everyone, this is your friend is Digital Abhi. In this post, I will share with you how to add users in WordPress website. But first, we need to understand a few things:

  • Why do we need to add users separately?
  • And why cannot you just share your username and password with the new user?

Why there is a need to add a new user?

So let’s say right now you are just one or two people who are handling the website of your business. Or maybe any other kind of website. And now your business needs to expand. So, you need to add one or more people to your team.

So, when you are adding new people to your team you cannot just simply share the username and password. Why? Because there are a lot of things which you don’t want to share with a new person. For example, the payment methods, site settings, etc.

So, instead of giving 100% admin access to the new person, you just want to give limited access. And that’s where the feature of adding new users come into the role.
