You can use
passwd to change a password on behalf of a user. Just replace
username with the user account you want to change.
sudo passwd username
The system will prompt you to enter a password. You can generate a password here. Passwords do not echo to the screen when you enter them.
You can also change the password of the currently logged in account by typing
passwd (without specifying a username). You will be prompted to enter your old password for verification and then a new password.
