Create User
The `Create User` screen can be used to create and configure one normal (non-`root`) user account during the installation. Only one user account can be configured here; if you require more accounts, wait until the installation completes, reboot your system and then create other accounts using either the [command]#useradd# command in a terminal, or a graphical utility for managing user accounts (for example, the `Users` screen in the Settings menu in [application]*GNOME*).
Creating a normal user account is not required to finish the installation; however, it is highly recommended. If you do not create one, you will have to log in to the system as `root` directly, which is *not* recommended.
The Create User screen. Use the text input fields to create a user account and configure its settings.

To configure a user account, fill out the `Full name` (for example, `John Smith`) and `Username` (for example, `jsmith`). The `username` will used to log in from a command line; if you install a graphical environment, then your graphical login manager will use `Full name`.
Make sure that the `Require a password to use this account` check box is enabled, enter a password you want to use for this account into the `Password` field. The characters you write will be displayed as dots for security. Then, repeat the same password in the `Confirm password` field below to ensure you entered it properly. Both entered passwords must be the same.
As you enter the password, it will be evaluated and the installer will determine the password's strength. If the installer considers your password weak, a message will appear at the bottom of the screen, explaining which aspect of your chosen password is considered insuficient. For example:
`The password you have provided is weak:` `The password is shorter than 5 characters.`
If a message similar to the above appears, it is highly recommended to choose a different, stronger password.
The `Make this user administrator` check box gives the user you are creatng administrative rights (by adding this user into the `wheel` group), allowing this user to use the [command]#sudo# command to perform tasks normally only available to `root` using only the user password, instead of the `root` password. This may be more convenient, but can also pose a security risk.
If you give administrator privileges to an user, make sure that the account is protected by a strong password. Never give an user administrator privileges without requiring any password for the account.
See the [citetitle]_{PRODUCT} Security Guide_, available at the link:++https://docs.fedoraproject.org/++[], for detailed information about password security including guidelines for selecting strong passwords.
To additional settings, click the `Advanced` button below the password input fields. A new dialog window titled `Advanced User Configuration` will open. This dialog is described in the following section.
Advanced User Configuration
The `Advanced User Configuration` dialog allows you to change the following settings for the new user account.

The user's `Home directory` (`/home/pass:attributes[{blank}]_username_pass:attributes[{blank}]` by default).
The user's ID (UID). The default value is 1000. UIDs 0-999 are reserved by the system so they cannot be assigned to an user.
