I need to share a folder on my network for my new scanner to save documents to. I don't want to give the scanner my personal account's password, and it looks like anonymous shares, even very limited ones, are a bad idea now (correct me if I'm wrong!). So I thought I'd make a dedicated username / password for the scanner, but don't want to show it on the user switching screen. Is this possible?

ETA: I got it off the user switching screen. Does this mean that no local login is ever possible using this account? Ideally it would be valid only as a network credential...
