I made a new Debian droplet, and I’ve noticed there’s an already existing user called “debian”. It’s got no password, and has never logged in. The home directory’s creation date is five days before the creation date of my droplet. This directory’s creation date also happens to coincide with the creation date of the file system, so I’m guessing this is a remnant of the original image created to base new Debian droplets off of?
Can I remove this user and its home directory safely?
