No, I am not confusing them.

An account is a means of identification and authentication of the user.

If you are using a single account for multiple persons, please stop
talking about security and privacy. You didn't get the entire concept.

Example: If you are freely sharing the code to a safe, you CAN NOT
expect the contents to be not accessible by those you told the code.

I am not going to discuss the rest of your post. It's pointless.
