The Chronager program identifies a user by the same login name the user enters when he/she logs in to Windows (windows login name or logon). If you do not add a new login to the user list of Chronager, the program will add it automatically to the 'Guests' group.

Chronager software contains the following built-in users groups:
  • Administrators: Built-in account for administering the Chronager.
  • Guests: Built-in account for guest access to the Internet. Please note that all unregistered users will be added to this group automatically.
  • Users: Built-in account for restricted users.
