    The Moto E and G series devices with Marshmallow do not have multi-user implemented, the only way to make it work is to flash a custom ROM. – acejavelin Oct 28 '16 at 2:55
  • @acejavelin moto g4 plus has multi user functionality – pkm Oct 28 '16 at 3:10
  • Your OEM removed/suppressed this functionality because they found the hardware unsuitable to support more than a single user. It's pretty much a normal thing in low-end devices. If your Android is rooted, try the trick Android One users follow to enable multi-user. – Firelord Oct 28 '16 at 3:21
  • @acejavelin: thanks for the pointer. Edited answer based on it – beeshyams Oct 28 '16 at 3:26
  • @pkm I was unaware that the G4 had this functionality, I can confirm the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation G and 1st and 2nd generation E series devices do not have this functionality (I just fired up my original G and G3 to verify), however my Moto X Pure Edition does have this feature. – acejavelin Oct 28 '16 at 5:04

Your device does not support multi user mode

See reply by Senior Moderator in Lenovo forums

There are many features that are disabled on different phones due to hardware or other reasons. It could be that the GPU can't handle this. It could be that some features are reserved for mid or high end phones.

Another example is multi-user mode

(Emphasis supplied)

Sorry about that !

On supported Moto devices, you find this option under

  • Settings → Device → users → add user

  • Another way to find out is to use the search option in settings ( magnifying glass symbol on top right). Just typing add brings up this option, as you can see in first Screenshot

  • From the notification bar, it has a user icon at extreme right, clicking on which will give you user options , as in second screenshot

    Also, is there a user icon at the top right of notification shade? I haven't used Moto's implementation of "stock" Android. – Andy Yan Oct 28 '16 at 2:18
  • Yes there is icon but on clicking doesn't show add user option ..... also not visible when I type "add"or in the top right corner – pkm Oct 28 '16 at 3:06
  • Unfortunately your device doesn't support * multi user* mode – beeshyams Oct 28 '16 at 3:27
  • My device was supporting it but after reset option disappeared. – xySVerma Sep 1 '17 at 13:16
