I would like to add a restricted profile. I'm on an Xperia Z2 tablet (so not on a phone, where you can't use restricted profiles) running Android 5.0.2 and I'm the "Owner".

Also when I tap OK no options regarding restricted profiles are offered.

According to this support article by Sony on multiple users, it should be possible on the Z2.

I tried adding a PIN screen lock for the Owner account. That did change the information in the alert shown when adding a new user, but that didn't show the restricted profile option.
