To create a user who participates in the manipulation of the system, use the command " sudo adduser username ", followed by " sudo / usr / sbin / visudo ".

Likewise, to ensure the privacy of the content of said user, the command " sudo passwd username ". Which after pressing "Enter" will ask you to set the password in question.
