How to change the Password never expires attribute and set a password expiration date using PowerShell

The two scripts below can be used to set the Password never expires attribute to true and change the password expiration date in Active Directory (AD).

Set the Password never expires attribute

To set the Password never expires attribute for AD users:

$User = (Read-Host -Prompt "Username")
Set-ADUser -Identity $User -PasswordNeverExpires $true

Set the password expiration date

You can extend the validity of an AD password by setting the pwdlastset attribute to -1, which sets the value of the attribute to the current date and time.

$Username = (Read-Host -Prompt "Username")
$User = Get-ADUser $Username -Properties pwdlastset
$User.pwdlastset = 0
Set-ADUser -Instance $User
$User.pwdlastset = -1
Set-ADUser -Instance $User
