 Reset Password


The easiest method of resetting a user’s account password in Linux is to use the passwd command. To do it on Linux Mint or any Linux distribution that uses sudo, start a shell terminal and type the following command:

  • sudo passwd

You will, of course, be prompted to authenticate with your current password before you are given the opportunity of changing it. On a distribution that does not use sudo, call the passwd command without sudo.

@crismblog:
I cannot see the image which you have attached to this tutorial.
It seems the link to the image file is dead.

Short and sweet. Nice :)

Also, if you are on a system with more than one user, running sudo passwd other-user-name will allow you to just as easily change their password.
