Changing your password

To change your password type passwd and return. You will then be prompted for your old password, to check it is you and not somebody strolling past your computer. Then you will be prompted for your new password twice. To ensure security, the password you type in is not displayed on the screen. Typing the new password twice ensures you do not mistype.
