Disabling password expiry on Office 365
Microsoft’s Office 365 has a long list of mostly useful features.
There’s one feature though that many clients keep complaining about – the password expiry.
Anyone facing this problem surely looked everywhere on the portal, unfortunately Microsoft hasn’t included an option to disable that. At least not in a simple way.
This article describes the procedure how the password expiry can be disabled.
First you will need to download the Microsoft Online Services Module for PowerShell
Next open the PowerShell and connect to Office 365 using the command:
In the logon dialog box enter your Office 365 administrator username and password.
To change a single user:
Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName <username> -PasswordNeverExpires $True
To change all users at once:
Get-MsolUser | Set-MsolUser -PasswordNeverExpires $True
To check if the changes have been successfull, you can run:
If the PasswordNeverExpires property is True, the change has been successful.
