Currently only administrator is allowed to add user/modify user/change password.
Administrator has the permission to change other users password or delete it directly.
Administrator no need to know the old password of other users.
For administrator to change itself password thing, still no need the old password, because administrator is already login a session.
So we don’t need to add “input field to enter the old password”.
But there is an open for multiple administrator user supporting, currently administrator user could add more administrator level users.
And anyone of the administrators login, he could modify other administrator users like change password or delete it directly.
I think it is a bit security issue. Have to restrict multiple administrator user or do not allow administrator to modify other administrator users.

Thanks, the password change was mentioned in step 4.
I think should add an input field to enter the old password and verify it
when the form is submitted(phosphor-webui).
