Shared server: Seeing Other Users Logged In


Recommended Posts

When logged into my shared server, I usually see only my own username logged in when I type the SSH command "> who"

For example, I normally see:
> who;
ChenXiu    pts/1   2021-09-02 09:55 (ip addr)

However, I sometimes other users, like this:
> who;
ChenXiu    pts/1   2021-09-02 09:55    (ip addr)
AnotherName    pts/2   2021-09-02 09:55    (ip addr)
SomeoneElse    pts/2   2021-09-02 09:55    (ip addr)

I'm assuming this is normal?

I tested this on other shared server hostings that I use (using commands like "who" and " last -i "

Should this be alarming?

Thank you.
