https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-your-first-digitalocean-droplet-virtual-server says, “Double click on the session name to connect, and accept the subsequent [popup] that asks if you want to connect to the host.” Fair enought but what is the login name? root?

Yes. The default user on all droplets (except CoreOS and FreeBSD dropets) is root.

On CoreOS the default user is “core” and on FreeBSD the default user is “freebsd”
