How to disable forced password change in Magento 2

In this blog, I will show you How to disable forced password change in Magento 2.This new feature will improve your Magento 2 online store security, but for developers it is very frustrating to change the password from time to time. With our development settings, we disable it.

If you are sitting on this form first you need to set up a new password. You are redirected from each adminhtml menu in this form. You do not have to set up a new password; it must be a new one. Magento 2 will monitor your previously used passwords! This is a good error message if you try the previous one:

In all of my development settings, I set stores -> Advanced -> Admin -> “Recommended” instead of being forced to change password. It’s a good idea to change a password routine, but for me this force is a bit overwhelming. It is absolutely unnecessary in the development process. If you want to set high quality standards, you cannot change this. Another chance is to change the lifetime of a lifetime of 90 days

Magento 2 has more security features than its older version. Security is always a good idea, but I think most of these features have been found to give a good sense of store owners. Magento has 1 security issues and many security links. But if your password is too secure and you change each weakness, the known security leak may be completely free. If your server attacks files or attacks access to the database, the administrator password will not block him.

Remember, you need to install security attachments quickly and hold your store on a protected web server.
