An administrator can manage the validity period of an password by changing the password policy.
1. Choose Maintenance > User Management > Password Policy. The Password Policy page is displayed.
2. In the Administrator area, set the administrator password policy. Perform the following steps:
a. Click Start to enable the password policy function. By default, this function is disabled.
Note: If the function is disabled, security risks may exist.
b. Set Password historical record. The value ranges from 0 to 12. The default value 5 indicates that the new password cannot be the same as any of five history passwords (including the current password).
c. Set Password validity period. The value ranges from 0 to 999. The default value 90 indicates that the password must be changed within 90 days.
d. Set Number of days in advance users are notified of password expiration. The value ranges from 0 to 999. The default value 30 indicates that the system prompts the login user to change the password 30 days before the password expiry time.
3. In the Common User area, set the common user password policy. Perform the following steps:
a. Click Start to enable the password policy function. By default, this function is disabled.

Can I set a validity period for user passwords
When AAA local authentication is used, the device does not support validity period setting for local user passwords. When RADIUS authentication is configured, whether password validity period setting is supported depends on the RADIUS server.
