How to Reset your Orbit Password


If you ever forget your password or lose your SSH key, don’t worry. We have a very easy way to reset the default user’s password. For example, if your system is an ubuntu system, we can reset the password for the username ubuntu.

    Note that if you create a Orbit with an SSH key, you can reset the password but the SSH key will still exist in the system. Also, all the existing user’s credentials will not be reset in the system except for the default user.
