Because it is useful to be able to log in as root in single user mode. It is generally only used for admin/repair purposes, and not for every day work. > Why the system does not ask for a password to enter in single-user > mode? Because you haven't told the system to ask for a password. In /etc/ttys, change: console none unknown off secure to: console none unknown off insecure Next time you enter single user mode, you will be prompted for the root password. You can test it by running `shutdown now'.
