WordPress comes with a very useful feature that lets you add new users to your website. You can easily add WordPress admin user to your site without using any plugins.

In this article, we’ll learn how to add an admin user in WordPress.

Why Add New Admin User in WordPress 

Admin needs to do numerous tasks like publishing a post and moderating comments. If there are multiple admins of a site, then work can be divided among them and tasks can be completed in a matter of minutes. Apart from that, it is always great to not rely on a single admin to finish a work. The users don’t need to wait for admin permission to do certain tasks. It ensures independence and increases the efficiency of your website.

Having said that, let’s get into it:
