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.

  • Just run in cmd with admin rights:

    net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited

  • 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.
