    Also only do this on a computer that isn’t connected to the internet, as you’ll have granted free root access to anybody who might be tunneling in.

    Also make sure you’re not part of a network & you don’t use USB drives or anything that *could* contain malware either, as you’ll have given it permission to install as the super user.

    It’s best just to get used to typing passwords.
