Root terminal without password

I have installed (I think) Devuan Ascii with LXQT and sddm. Whenever I start a root terminal, it launches without prompting for a password. a dialog says that my system is configured to do this. Does anyone know how to force it to request a password? Other applications, like Synaptic Package Manager do prompt for the root credentials.

Re: Root terminal without password

Are you sure you get a root terminal? Or is the prompt more like this one:

username@computername:~$
