What happens when a WordPress user password expires?

By default, when users’ passwords expire, they can continue working. They can change the password the next time they try to log in.

However, you can configure Melapress Login Security to instantly terminate a user’s session when their password expires. Do note that this can lead to unsaved work and loss of data.
