Too Long; Didn't Read

Linux follows tough rules when it comes to permission. Being a root user or a sudo user gives you permission to do almost anything which normal user don’t have. Several commands need a password to run and each time you try to run a password, Linux asks for a password. Today we will configure a passwordless passwordless version of the current user's current username using the current command. The username is your username for which you want to configure passwordless sudo. The password is not required to be used by Linux users.

Linux follows tough rules when it comes to permission. Being a root user or sudo user gives you permission to do almost anything which normal user don’t have. Several commands need sudo keyword to run and each time you try to run sudo, Linux asks for a password, today we will configure a passwordless sudo.
