which accounts require licences

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Create some content

I understand that a "User" account likely requires a license.

I understand that Anonymous can view content without a license. 

Is there such a thing as a "Viewer" that needs credentials to log in to keep things more secure and view data but does not need a license?
