Will users be prompted to reset their passwords if the maximum password age is changed from 999 to 0 days? We plan to change this so that passwords will not expire.

    Hi,

    Setting maximum password age to 0 means the password never expires so you won't be prompted to change it.

    Best Regards,

    Hi @Katherine Robillard

    I confirm that the password will not expire if you set 0 on the maximum age in password policy.
