Strengthen Security with Active Directory Password Expiration Notifications

Setting a Group Policy that regulates the user password expiration period is a basic best practice for securing Active Directory. However, many users, especially remote users, either don’t get the default Windows pop-up messages that warn them about upcoming password expirations, or simply ignore them. As a result, they fail to change their passwords on time, and your help desk team has to constantly hustle to keep everyone productive.

Netwrix Password Expiration Notifier won’t leave your helpdesk admins buried in password-related tickets, so you can maintain a strong Password Expiration Group Policy. The free tool automatically sends users an email alert that specifies the number of days left before password expiration, and also notifies you about when each user account ‘s password and which user accounts will expire.
