    Can't this be done under date and time settings? Usually accessible by clicking on the time in the panel, and by changing the time manually from there.

    On this 10.10 install, at least, yes, the time an date can be changed without having to acquire root privileges. Right click on the time in the panel, choose "settings", choose "time settings", change and confirm. No password request involved at all.
