My user acts like root


I noticed this while using gnome-disks and it doesn’t ask for a password. And then I tried to edit fstab without sudo and I can edit it too. Probably some chmod issue but I don’t exactly know what it is. I also don’t know when did this happen but I freshly installed my system 3 days ago. What I can do?

Edit: I cannot run pacman without sudo.

Maybe thanks to Polkit?


I didn’t know about this.
I checked it and it’s installed on my system. So it’s nothing dangerous as I feared.

Thanks for the reply.
