Kali Linux Login Error

I installed virtualbox and Kali Linux but the defaults to login ‘root’ and ‘toor’ are not working. I use a MacBook Air with a Intel i-5 dual core processor.

PLEASE let me know if this helps. Try “kali” and “kali”

you can also reset login passwords if you get stuck in most linux versions

This worked! Big help!

So I got in Kali using login kali and password kali, since root and toor didn’t work, but this happens now:

That command requires root privileges, which you no longer have by default. Use sudo with it, like this:
sudo apt-get update

It will ask for a password, which I believe is kali, although I’m not sure because I haven’t used that version yet.

Ok, sorry, found it: “new” command is:
sudo apt install terminator
sudo apt update

Password is kali indeed.


Make sure you use the update command first before you use install. Also, apt OR apt-get can be used, either is fine.
