If you're using the Workspace associated with the Git Basics course, the password is usually "mike the frog".

The terminal works, assuming that you are in your local computer, with in Linux must have a password. SUDO gives you as the super user, the power to modify, view and edit every file in the computer.

In this case, you are running a virtual machine within Treehouse servers, that's why you don't have/need that particular password.
