The option is "auth users", so adding an 's' should get you going.
(You don't even need to restart the daemon if it's already running.)

There should be warnings in the log file about "auth user" being an
unknown parameter every time someone connects to the rsync daemon (in
addition to when it starts), so please do check the log file when
diagnosing daemon problems.
