Make sudo ask for your password every time

Problem
When you use “sudo“, it remembers your password for some minutes, thus if you call “sudo” within this time frame again, it won’t ask your password.

However, I want “sudo” to ask my password every time I call it.

Solution
Execute the command “sudo visudo” and add the following line to the end of the “Defaults” block:

Defaults    timestamp_timeout=0

The value “0” means it won’t cache your password.

Tip from here.
