There could be a requirement when you want to set the users password to never expire on office365. The setting for In-cloud accounts is controlled using
Set-msoluser command. Please make sure before you set the password for the users to never expire, all users are enabled for Two Factor Authentication (2FA). You can create a conditional access (CA) policy which requires 2FA when anyone access the Cloud resources which will protect the user accounts.
