    Remove password from screen session

    I added a password to a GNU screen session running irssi (IRC client) on my server, however I would like to remove the password now (it was just a test). I'd rather not have to restart the session as it's running some pretty important IRC logging and other stuff.

    Cheers

    Reattach your screen with screen -r then press Ctrl-a : (note the colon) type password none and press enter it should say Password checking disabled then just press enter again
