    Is there a command similar to "id" in Asuswrt-Rmerlin that displays uid, gid and groups ?

    Not that I'm aware of. It would be fairly pointless because the OS isn't designed to be a multiuser system. That's why there is no useradd, userdel, usermod, groupadd, groupdel, etc.

    @ColinTaylor,

    So you can't create accounts for Entware applications like unbound and dnscrypt-proxy to not run under admin ?

    Unless there's a way to create accounts natively, the alternative is to install the Entware package of busybox.​

    Sorry I don't use entware so I can't comment on that. If you want a multi-user Linux system I think you'd be better served by using something like a Raspberry Pi. I think others have setup a chrooted Debian environment on the router.
