I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 (i9100) smartphone with LineageOS 14.1 (2017-02-22 nightly) which is based on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat).

I'd like to enable the guest account feature, but I can't find anything in Settings. How can I do that?

Please notice my device is encrypted. Are guest accounts compatible with encryption?
