Kali Linux | Enable Root User Login

We'll go through the step by step instructions to enable root login in Kali Linux.

Kali Linux | Enable Root User Login

Until recently, Kali Linux used the root account by default. In the latest versions of Kali, root login is disabled, forcing you to login to the GUI as your normal user account. The reasoning behind this change should be obvious, but if you're a Kali user, you probably know your way around a Linux system by now, and there's not much risk in letting you use the root account to login. Kali developers must've known that this change would annoy some people, because they've made it very convenient to re-enable the root login. 

In this guide, we'll go through the step by step instructions to enable root login in Kali Linux. This will permit you to login to the GUI as root. Of course, we're already able to login to root on the terminal with the sudo -i command.

Enable root login in Kali

Open a terminal and follow the steps below to enable root login in your GUI.

Step 1 : First, use the apt package manager to install the kali-root-login package.
$ sudo apt update 
$ sudo apt install kali-root-login

sudo apt install kali-root-login

Step 2 : Next, you need to set the root password with the passwd command. Even just setting it to the current password of your user account is fine, but this command must be run.

$ sudo passwd 

[Enter password twice]

sudo passwd
Step 3 : Now you can return to the login screen by switching users, logging out, or restarting the system.

Step 4 : Login with the root user account and the password you just set in the previous steps.

That's all there is to it. You can now log in to the GUI as root, and of course your normal user account if you want.

=>In this guide, we saw how to enable root login on Kali Linux. By default, we are already able to login to the terminal as root with the sudo -i command, but root login for the GUI was disabled in the latest versions of Kali. After following these steps, you're now able to login to both GUI and terminal as root.
