I have the LG K61 and would like to enable a second user on the device but cannot find the “add user”  anywhere in settings. I need to let someone “borrow” my phone for a day for phone calls only and thought this feature may let me add a user with only phone priveledges but if not any other thoughts on how to do this ? Thank you !

To add: the “add user/guest mode” feature is not available on LG phones after Android version Lollipop (5.1.x) back in 2014/15. Add user, guest mode or multi-user was removed because it was discovered that it could be used as a backdoor to defeat Google’s Factory Reset Protection feature.

You do not have to take any formal action to let another user use your device for a day.
