Up One Level



An 'account' is the term used most commonly to describe a user's profile which permits access to computer systems. Sometimes the account refers simply to the means of gaining network access to printers and the filing system; in other instances 'accounts' can be application systems' specific and incorporate a range of optional privileges controlling a user's level of access. (See Access Control).
