In Windows 8.1/8/7, we are allowed to enable Password Expiration to determine the period of time that a password can be used before the system requires the user to change it. By default, passwords of user accounts expire after 42 days and the password expiry notice occurs 5 days before the password expiration date in Windows 8.1/8/7. This is by design. But you can also change the time to warn a user to change password before expiration.

P.S.: Haven't enabled password expiration yet, click here for more details.
