  1. Log in (see these instructions) to the Tandy Community Supercomputer
  2. At the command prompt, type:

    Code Block
    $ passwd
  3. Enter your current password as prompted.


    While typing passwords into the passwd command, no text will be displayed, not even dot or star placeholders. This is normal.

  4. Enter a new password, as prompted. Please use a strong password. If you need some help, you might want to read this article from Microsoft about choosing good passwords.
  5. You will need to enter your new password a second time. If they don't match, you will get an error message, and your password will not change. You'll need to run the passwd command again in that case.
