Asks for administrative password to open any program

Parrot OS showing enter administrative password while trying to open any program and root password is showing incorrect. what is the administrative password? i didn’t remember setting one up. it is just freshly installed

Have you tried your main username password?

  1. same pwd u put on it when u did install it
  2. use sudo -i when u open any terminal
  3. if u wanna change the password u can check this:
    I need help, forgot my password

Root is also known as supervisor and administrator.
you may have forgot to setup the root password while installation

open a terminal
run : sudo -l
Doing this will give your user account all root privileges, so use them wisely.

then : sudo passwd
then setup your Root password
