    Is it possible to create a hidden account?

    Hello friends of the forum.
    I need to create an admin account in our home computer, but it needs to be a hidden account. Is it possible? I have access to everything in the computer, and I also had replaced the utilman.exe with the command line, to use it on the system startup.

    I'm trying to create a viable family monitoring system in the computer, I managed to install the software called [key logger removed by admin] to remotely check on the computer, and now I need to create a hidden account.

    By hidden I just want it to doesn't show on the windows startup, but if I can log in through it, of course. Just to hide it from the list where all the other users appears.

    Thank you in advance.

    Sorry but we do not support spying on other people, if you want reports use something visible like Microsoft family safety stuff - Family Child - Manage Activity Reporting Settings - Windows 10 Forums
