On December 8th, 2014, Apple posted a KBase article showing a way to hide user accounts in Yosemite that was different than the methods available in previous versions of OS X.

In Yosemite, you can add an IsHidden user attribute to the user’s account record and set a specific value in order to hide or unhide the account:

  • Hide: Set the IsHidden user attribute’s value to 1
  • Unhide: Set the IsHidden user attribute’s value to

It’s also possible to unhide a hidden account by deleting the IsHidden user attribute from the user’s account record. For more details, see below the jump.
