    Question Kali 2020.2 live login credentials are not kali/kali

    Hi,
    I am trying to use the kali 2020.2 live usb but the advertised credentials for 2020.1 ( kali/kali) are not accepted.
    They are not advertised on the Kali web site.

    I have tried:

    root/toor
    kali/kali
    root/"blank"
    kali/"blank"
    root/root

    all with no success.

    I have checked with the Virtualbox OVA version that accepts kali/kali.

    Can somebody help?

    Thanks
    Palmer

    PS My suggestion to the developers would be to include in the download a text file with the tested credential and/or add them permanently on the download page.

    Hi,

    Since 2020 release, you are invited to use a non-root user by default
    You are prompted to create a non-root user during install of Kali, but if you are using Kali live, kali/kali works

    It is explained here:
