Why am I prompted to change my password every few days when it expires in 90 day
User passwords expire in 90 days set for your Org so it's prompt to change password.

Field Description Message When set, this custom message appears in the Account Lockoutemail and at the bottom of the Confirm Identity screen for users resettingtheir passwords. You can customize it with the name of your internalhelp desk or a system administrator. For the lockout email, the messageonly appears for accounts that need an administrator to reset them.Lockouts due to time restrictions get a different system email message. Help link If set, this link displays with the text defined in the Message field. In the Account Lockout email, the URL displaysjust as it is typed into the Help link field,so the user can see where the link takes them. Thisis a security feature because the user is not within a Salesforce organization.
On the Confirm Identity password screen, the Help link URL combines with the text in the Message fieldto make a clickable link. Security isn't an issue sincethe user is in a Salesforce organization when changing passwords.Valid protocols:
- Specify an alternative home page for users with the “API Only User” permission. After completing user management taskssuch as resetting a password, API-only users areredirected to the URL specified here, rather than to the login page.
- Click Save.
