To determine when the password for your Active Directory user account will expire, open a command prompt window and type the following command:

The output of this command will span several lines, so look for the line that starts with “Password expires” and you can see the exact day and time when your domain password will expire.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has been predicting the death of passwords for nearly 20 years.

They’re still with us today, but now the company has decided it’s time get rid of one of the sillier rules that helped make passwords a problem in the first place: forced periodic password changes.

The company plans to drop expiring password policies in its security configuration baseline settings for Windows 10 1903, or the May 2019 Update, and for Windows Server 1903.

“Periodic password expiration is an ancient and obsolete mitigation of very low value, and we don’t believe it’s worthwhile for our baseline to enforce any specific value,” explains Aaron Margosis, a Microsoft principal consultant.

Organizations will now be able to pick their own password expiration date or choose not to have one at all.
