How to set up a password expiration date for a Microsoft account
For Windows 10 users, Microsoft always recommends using a Microsoft Account to sign in instead of your local account that isn’t associated with your email.
For a Microsoft Account, you can set password expiration from your online account security settings. Once you enable the feature you will be able to set a new password every 72 days.
1. Go to your Microsoft account and click “Change password” at the top. You will be asked to provide your existing password, as well as a new one.
2. Enter your current password and type in a new password. Click the checkbox next to “Make Me Change My Password Every 72 Days,” and then click “Save” to apply your new password and expiration date.
