Starting with FydeOS for PC v6.0, the default user chronos on the system command line will no longer bear a default password. You can directly use the sudo command to perform command line operations that require root privileges.

If you want to gain root authority and open an SSH remote connection and use the same password, use the command:

$ sudo mount -o remount rw /
$ sudo passwd chronos

Following the prompt, enter and confirm the password you want to set. Note that there will not be cursor prompts when you type password to the shell, you have to know what you type and remember.
