TIL: Enable sudo without a password on MacOS

For the millionth time, I upgraded macOS to the next major version (Monterey) and I had to search for how to re-enable password-less sudo’ing (don’t judge me.)

  1. edit /etc/sudoers

     sudo visudo
  2. Then find the admin group permission section:

     %admin          ALL = (ALL) ALL
  3. Change to add NOPASSWD:

     %admin          ALL = (ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
  4. Profit until next year.
