How to Default password for admin in Plone 6

I don't see any options to change the default admin: admin password in Plone 6 , from where we can change the administrative password?

Either change it in buildout or login as "admin" into http://localhost:8080/manage and change it through the web.

I use this when I need to create a new instance with a custom admin password:

/usr/local/Plone/venv/bin/addzopeuser admin secret

It expects the zope.conf file to be in /usr/local/Plone/venv/etc

This works only if there is no Data.fs so far. If you start the instance the first time, the default admin:admin credentials would be used.
