[SOLVED] pikaur not ask for password for installation

I am using pikaur to install and upgrade software from AUR.
It is good. But what I notice is that pikaur does not ask for password for installing software.

~$ pikaur -S google-chrome --noedit --noconfirm

will not ask password for installation at last.

I understand passing editing PKGBUILD and passing "Do you want to proceed (Y/N)", for instance.
And I expect asking password for installation at last after compiling the package. But it does not.

I also try it with close terminal and reopen terminal run the command like above.
No password for installation is asked.

I don't think it is normal.

Re: [SOLVED] pikaur not ask for password for installation

pikaur just uses sudo at the end of the day, did you configure sudo to not ask you for a password? Are you NEVER prompted for a password or just once and before you'd expect it? There's

[misc]
SudoLoopInterval (default: 59)

Interval in seconds in which sudo command will be spawned in the background to avoid asking for sudo password more than once (-1 to disable sudo loop at all).

in it's config.
