Thanks for your time and efforts in developing this awesome file. Please, how can I use this file to achieve "Restricting One Account to One Contact". ie When a user logs into the DB, he is directed to his own page on the contacts layout.

That is not part of this module. You are confusing Authentication with Authorization. An account is about Authentication (Who are you?) but Authentication is in the privilege set (What can you do?).
Start with the FM help file on security and Record Level Access.
Wim is correct. This module is for the creation and deletion of accounts in your FileMaker database.
You can do the following with the module in relationship to user accounts for single or multi-file systems.:
- Change the privilege set
- Reset the password (to default or admin specified)
- Enable/Disable the account
Thanks for your response
Thank you, Darren! An awesome module, indeed.
I've integrated you Accounts Module into a 3 file solution. A couple of questions about passwords:
1) in the "Accounts: ReturnAccountSettings" script, left in it's original state or changing the variable $password to a new default password seems to create an account with no password. Am I doing something wrong or might there be a logic problem?
2) in the "Accounts: ReturnAccountSettings" script, setting the variable $password$requirePasswordChange forces a user to manually change the password at login, then to manually change the password for each subsequent file as it tries to open. Is this correct behaviour? If so, the danger is that a user could set subsequent files to a different password...although I'm not sure there's any way to avoid this.
