Hello, @ruckeyromero

If you share the same account you can always use the history command in the terminal and this will show you the commands that they’ve executed.

Additionally, you can track down the logs for the ssh connections. On a Ubuntu droplet, you can monitor the /var/log/auth.log

You can also create e separate account for the other users and limit their privileges if you want to be sure they won’t make any server config changes and etc.
