Privileged Account

A privileged account is a login ID on some system which has elevated security rights -- i.e,. is able to perform more tasks and/or access more data than a regular user can do. Privileged accounts are also often shared accounts -- i.e., they do not belong to just one user, but rather are shared by multiple users, who are usually system administrators, database administrators, network managers and the like.
