To ensure that the appropriate level of password security is used for your organization, specify password requirements with Password Policies settings for users assigned to a profile. Profile Password Policies settings override the organization-wide Password Policies for that profile’s users. If you do not set Password Policies on a profile, the organization-wide Password Policies apply. New profile Password Policies take effect for existing profile users when they reset their passwords.

Change the values for the profile.
If you change the User passwords expire in
setting, the change affects a user’s password expiration date if that user’s new expiration date is earlier than the old expiration date or if you remove an expiration by selecting Never expires
