time machine – Timemachine a number of passwords


I’ve a number of commonplace consumer accounts on a Mac OS laptop.

I’ve setup a timemachine backup. This backup is protected by a password. So recordsdata are encrypted on the exterior backup drive.

Every consumer can launch the backup. However he must know the Time Machine password.

If a consumer is aware of the timemachine password, he can different consumer’s recordsdata on the exterior drive.

I wish to forestall that:

  • Is there a approach to launch a backup with out figuring out the timemachine password ? (and ensure customers can’t learn recordsdata on the timemachine exterior drive)
  • Or is there a approach to set totally different timemachine password/encryption keys for every customers ? At the moment, the timemachine password is a “per drive” password. I would really like a “per consumer” timemachine password.

Is there a approach to do this ? Or are there options ?

Thanks quite a bit
