-To configure a user: +The initial Zabbix installation has two predefined users: 
 + 
 +  * //Admin// - a Zabbix [[:​manual/​config/​users_and_usergroups/​permissions#​user_type|superuser]] with full permissions;​ 
 +  * //guest// - a special Zabbix [[:​manual/​config/​users_and_usergroups/​permissions#​user_type|user]]. As a guest, you may access monitoring pages in Zabbix without being logged in. Note that by default, '​guest'​ has no permissions on Zabbix objects. (Starting with Zabbix 4.4.2, the '​guest'​ user is disabled by default. To re-enable it, add it to the Guests user group.)

 +To configure a new user:
