-It is not possible to change the password (without recompiling the distro with a different one) because the password file is contained inside the read-only squashfs SYSTEM file (the read-only part is the challenge). Instead of changing the password there are two main options: a) You can enable/​disable SSH easily within the Kodi GUI, so only enable it when really needed (by default it is disabled) and then disable it again when done, or b) Create and push an SSH private ​key to the box, then disable SSH password authentication in the settings add-on. If you're going to use SSH regularly the second option is best as SSH keys offer much better protection than passwords.+It is not possible to change the password (without recompiling the distro with a different one) because the password file is contained inside the read-only squashfs SYSTEM file (the read-only part is the challenge).
