Ubuntu – No password prompt at sudo command


Whenever I issue command sudo apt-get install ** it does not ask for password, not in my admin user too.

How to make it prompt for password?

My sudoer :

ubuntu:~$ sudo cat /etc/sudoers
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
# Please consider adding local content in /etc/sudoers.d/ instead of
# directly modifying this file.
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.
Defaults    env_reset
Defaults    secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"

# Host alias specification

# User alias specification

# Cmnd alias specification

# User privilege specification
root    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Allow members of group sudo to execute any command
%sudo   ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

# See sudoers(5) for more information on "#include" directives:

#includedir /etc/sudoers.d

Edit /etc/sudoers using sudo visudo, and remove the last line:


(By the way, please note that this line at the end of the file is not the preferred way to make sudo not prompt for a password, for those who want to do that.)
