How to use sudo command without password

Posted on: September 17th, 2022 by Olu No Comments

Hi folks,

in this post I discuss how you can use sudo command without password on a Linux system.

Back up your sudoers file

cp /etc/sudoers /etc/sudoers.old

Then, run visudo command



Then enter an entry like

your-user-name ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL


Then, if visuo uses nano, press Ctrl X to save. Then press enter to finish the save.

Please note: it’s not good security pracrice to let a non-root user run sudo without passwords, so you may want to limit it to some specific commands.

That’s all for now. Till next time, happy software development.
