Skip Password Prompt When Executing sudo


To skip the system prompt for the administrator's password, add the following to your sudoers file:

# Don't prompt for password when using sudo. user ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

This will modify the sudoers file to skip the sudo password prompt for the current user.

Or in one step, do this on the command line:

whoami=$(whoami) sudo bash -c 'echo -e "# Don'\''t prompt for password when using sudo.\n'$whoami' ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL" >> /etc/sudoers'
