What is a Root Account?

In UNIX-based systems, such as Linux, the root account is the most privileged account on the system. It gives you the ability to perform all forms of system administration, such as adding new accounts, changing passwords, examining log files and installing software.

Using a root account is a double-edge sword. On one hand, it gives you unlimited power to configure a system the way you'd like. But it also provides the ability to do unlimited harm to a system. So, you should use it only when necessary and as carefully as possible, and you should always keep its password secure.

In some instances, though, you need root access. For example, when configuring certain network devices. But, even in these cases, you should log out of root when you have completed your work.
