Why does Ubuntu force users to create a password upon installation?
Cannot authenticate without a password It did not fix my problem. If I create an admin account without password in the first place, what should I enter in place of the password? Also, how to perform administrative actions (such as
sudo or downloading apps from Ubuntu Software Center) without password? How to remove the password entirely from my admin accounts?
Note: In Windows 7, when you do not set a password or remove the existing password for an administrator, that administrator can be used to authenticate without a password. Leave the password blank and you can do anything.
