This stores information about users that may log in. It also controls which shell starts when you log in as a particular user. If you do “cat /etc/passwd | grep -I adam”, you’ll see something like this


This means that /bin/sh is going to be adam’s shell. To change this, do:

sudo usermod adam -s /bin/bash
