Hello,
I am trying to run VirtualBox (VB) in Ubuntu 20.04. I went into the terminal to grant VB permission using steps in the video provided. I got up to the 2:50 mark and then it says I have to modify the Secure Boot UEFI (pictured below) and enable certain permissions by creating a password and restarting. However there is no where for me to give a password. I don't know if I should restart and risk bricking my hardware or if there is somewhere I need to make a password. Thanks to anyone who can help.

You have to press <TAB> to highlight OK and enter, and then you'll be able to input the password. Check this post out to know a bit more about what's secure boot and what are you doing with that (it covers that exact step at about 40% of the post).
