How to Create New Admin User in Magento 2

From Magento 2 configuration, you can create admin user accounts as many as you need but they will be set in different access level if you ask. For example, you can assign the view and change only for websites or stores without for any global settings or data.

To limit the access permissions for Admin user account, you can complete the required credentials on the Magento Administrator, that will describe in detail in the tutorial I introduce you today.
