Is it safe to rename the dietpi user?

I wanted to see if I could rename the dietpi account? Will this mess up anything?

Do NOT rename the dietpi user as it is used by DietPi scripts and installed software at least to share permissions via dietpi group.

If you want to connect as different user create an additional one, e.g.:
useradd -m michaing

And give him sudo permissions:
echo ‘michaing ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL’ > /etc/sudoers.d/michaing

(Replace “michaing” with the desired user name)

Thanks thats what I thought! I just wanted to be sure. :slight_smile:
