How to Set Password Never Expire in CentOS 7



By default, user accounts take aging details mentioned in /etc/login.def configuration file if the password policy are already applied then we need to set user account and password never expire using chage command.

The chage command changes the number of days between password changes and the date of the last password change.

[root@linuxcnf ~]# chage -m 0 -M 99999 -I -1 -E -1 linuxcnf
[root@linuxcnf ~]#

Verify the new aging details of a user:

[root@linuxcnf ~]# chage -l linuxcnf
Last password change                                               : Aug 12, 2018
Password expires                                                     : never
Password inactive                                                    : never
Account expires                                                       : never
Minimum number of days between password change        : 0
Maximum number of days between password change        : 99999
Number of days of warning before password expires         : 7
[root@linuxcnf ~]#

It’s done!!!
