Password Policy Effect on existing users

What if I apply password policy on a profile. Will it effect the existing users logon process and if no when and how this newly implemented policy will be applied?

The policy will take effect immediately; specificially

  • Expire, MaxLogonAttempts, and LockedUserExpire will be enforced when a user with the profile tries to log on
  • The other password attributes will be enforced when a user with the profile tries to change a password
