DEBIAN user account password

Hello, I've just installed Debian 9 and I installed the Plasma Desktop GUI but it has a username to login with as DEBIAN and I cannot change it to root as I know the root password but have no idea what the password is for this DEBIAN account. Can I SSH into the box, login as root and change this DEBIAN users password? or does anyone know what the password would be?

is it legitimate and allowed and can be done to make another user account set uid and gid to null 0 to make another root account with different name and possibly not damage the debian system creating and using that new account BenJoBoy Linux - Newbie 12 01-29-2006 10:02 AM > Forums > Linux Forums > Linux - Newbie
