@ PavSingh

Isn't there an option in applications > settings > system settings > startup and shutdown > login screen (sddm) > Advanced tab to disable auto login?

Thanks this worked. I have manage to create a new user using KUser manager but it does not appear on the logon screen.

Many thanks for your help.
