    You should also be aware of how to change your password. The command passwd will prompt you for your old password, and your new password. It will ask you to reenter the new password for validation. Be careful not to forget your password—if you do, you will have to ask the system administrator to reset it for you. (If you’re the system administrator, see Section 4.4.)
