Securing your CloudReady device

    Hi Forrest, when the command line screen appears, there are several warnings as the welcome message, including one comment on how to change the password. It is a different command than what you recommend here. I ignored it and preferred to follow your steps, but it is a bit confusing. Maybe this is something you guys could change to be consistent...

    Great stuff, followed everything you said, and now I feel safer, the guide works,

    off topic : now, if only you could enter a pin on the login screen, (not my main google password) that would make life so much easier

    Hi Forrest, thanks for this guide & all the work you guys have done on CloudReady. Your guide is very helpful & it makes for a much more secure environment. You may want to add to your instructions that after entering "ctl+alt+t" you need to type "shell" before "sudo mount -o rw,remount /"

    Thanks to Forrest and +1 to Marc comments.

    It looks like the OTA update to v54.1 erased the previous password settings and went back to default... Forrest, can you confirm?
    Something to keep in mind if we have to execute this routine after every update.

    Hey Gonz -

    I just checked on this and you're entirely right - I should have anticipated.

    I'll file this as a bug and add a warning note to this article - thanks for bringing this to our attention!

    If users password doesn't works:

    Check because tty2 keep an english keyboard !


    user: "chronos"

    PW: "chro,e" (mot de passe en français, dû au clavier americain)


    (however root login doesn't exist in version CR 60 - janvier 2017)
