Hi @meimei,

Do you have PasswordAuthentication turned on in your /etc/ssh/sshd_config? Maybe it changed to the default one for some reason.

In such cases, you can use the recovery console to gain access back and check if that’s the case.

Log in to your Droplet and see if you have PasswordAuthentication turned on in the mentioned config file.

Lastly, I want to mention that it’s recommended that you use SSH keys rather than Password authentication as t’s considered more secure.
