  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question.

    If you want to use Powershell to set user passwords to never expire. 

    You can use the command below.

    Get-MsolUser | Set-MsolUser -PasswordNeverExpires $true
    
    

    Please read the link to learn more about how to do it.

  • If it is a Cloud user you can only do this with PowerShell. Only Hybrid users (synced from Active Directory) can be modified with Active Directory Users & Computers and don’t require PowerShell.

    Just do it.

    Note that after Get-MsolUser to add the username, otherwise you have all of the mailboxes in your pipeline and set password PasswordNeverExpires on all mailboxes. For configuring PasswordneverExpires for an induvidual user, see below. For the three mailboxes you have to perform it separately.

    Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName <User ID>  -PasswordNeverExpires $true

    Back in september 2014 I have written a blogpost (Dutch language) about this question: https://windowstechblog.nl/office-365-wachtwoord-nooit-vergeten-instellen

  • Hi,

    I think you can't do this operation in the Office 365 admin center. PowerShell is the good choice for you to do it.

    Follow the steps:

    1. Run your powershell  as administrator.

    2. connect to MSOLService

    Connect-MsolService

    3. sign in your Office365 admin account

    4. run the command to set it.

    Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName <name of the account> -PasswordNeverExpires $true

    You also need to install some required PowerShell module.

    Refer the link below.
