* Administration passwords set at the Welcome Screen cannot contain
most non-english characters, including spaces ([[!tails_ticket

- <span class="code">a&ndash;z</span>
- <span class="code">A&ndash;Z</span>
- <span class="code">1&ndash;9</span>

administration password again in your Tails session, unless you
type single quotes <span class="code">'</span> around it.
For example, if you set the administration password:
<span class="code">née entrepôt über señor</span>, you would have to
type <span class="code">'née entrepôt über señor'</span>.
