What I need is to remove the password that appears before the wp-admin to login to the server.

If you are referring to the one click install wordpress, you will have to login to your server with SSH and it should show you the password so you can access the wordpress setup. I wouldn’t recommend removing it because that would be a security risk. Though if for any reason you still want to, you can sftp into your droplet with an ftp client like filezilla by typing in hostname like this: sftp://IP.addr.ress eg. sftp:// then in the /var/www/wp-admin directory you delete the .htaccess file.
