I accidently locked screen under ec2-user (pressed C-a C-x). As far as I know ec2-user has no password.
Now I’m prompted for password to unlock.
I do not want to terminate the process running under that screen. Is there any way to unlock the screen?
In a different session, login as root and reset your user password.
sudo passwd ec2-user
