How do you change the username for a user on the Ubuntu operating system?
You can change your user's password by using the
passwd command (replace
bob with your user's name):
sudo passwd bob
You may be asked to enter the current password for the user.
Then you'll be prompted twice for the replacement password. The second input is compared against the first and both are required to match before the new password is successfully set.
Enter new UNIX password: Retype new UNIX password: passwd: password updated successfully
When that command finishes, your new password will be set!
You can read more about the
passwd command in the Ubuntu manual.
