PasswordExpiryWarning in Windows 10 professional RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have two computers installed with the latest Windows 10 20H2 and one of the computers in these few days appears the reminder message to request to change the password in coming 5days after login the Windows system. However, I didn't set any password and also enabled the password to never expire in the windows system.

    Thus, anybody can know any change of system to cause upon reminder message from the system and how to disable such reminder message.

  • TLDR:

    Potential impact
    Users see a dialog-box that prompts them to change their password each time that they log on to the domain when their password is configured to expire in 5 or fewer days.

    So thats what you are experiencing.

    net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited sets the password age to unlimited which in essence is a security risk. Rotating your passwords regularly is always recommended.

  • Hi,

    I have faced the similar issue when I upgraded to Windows 10. It gave me the notification saying my password is expired and need to change.

    I didn't want to change my password. so I just followed this simple step to turn off the password expiration in Windows 10.

    • Right click on This PC and then select Manage to open Computer Management System.
    • Then, go to Local Users and Groups then select Users.
    • After that, Double click on your user account.
    • Check the option of Password Never Expired and then click Ok.

    These are the steps I followed. Hope this will help you to resolve this issue.

  • Hi,
    What type of account you use to log into the system?
    You might have accidentally chosen to sign in with a Microsoft account when you've already signed in with a local computer account without a password.

    Choose the local computer account instead of the account that prompts you for a password.
    Click Start / Settings (the gear in the left column).
    Click on System
    In the left column, click Shared experiences.
    Turn off nearby sharing and sharing on all devices.

    Hope the above information can help you.
