I don't know how, but suddenly there are a lot of "Sharing Only" under Other Users. On my other mac, there are no such thing.

  • Never seen that! But all the users visible in your screenshot except yourself are "system users" = pre-defined users with special roles in the OS. Please add your system version! – klanomath Nov 23 '17 at 8:40
  • I have macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 (17B48). Yes, that's very strange. Login screen (authorization after system boot) have all those other users as well, very annoying. – Janiis Nov 23 '17 at 9:12
  • Can you take some screenshots of Directory Utility? – JMY1000 Nov 23 '17 at 9:25
  • @JMY1000 added Directory Utility screenshots to post. – Janiis Nov 23 '17 at 9:33
  • @Janiis I think it's either some hidden feature of the com.apple.loginwindow.plist (e.g. HiddenUsersList: some array containing all system users) or your DS db got wonky. Please add the output of sudo defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow. You may have to redact some entries (e.g. lastUserName)! – klanomath Nov 23 '17 at 10:23

Updating macOS High Sierra to version 10.13.2 (17C88) fixed the issue.
