This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This would be your username and password - whatever you want them to be. One of the things that make Linux/Ubuntu more secure is the requirement to have a username and password by default so that not just any rogue trojan or user on the other side of the world can install programs on your computer.

It's a feature, not a bug.

with no password.
