Hi Andrew,

It's in the teachers notes below the video:

"if it's not, install it using sudo apt-get install git. You'll need to give your password, which is mike the frog by default in the Treehouse Console (mind the spaces!)"

It's not the most clear of text, but it means that you should use: 'mike the frog'
