PASSWORD EXPIRE
Specify PASSWORD EXPIRE if you want the user's password to expire. This setting forces the user (or the DBA) to change the password before the user can log in to the database.

It is a security thing.  When I set up a user, I give him an easy password (like password, or his SSN), but I want it changed to something difficult.  So, I use the expire clause, and recommend they change to match their network password (so they don't have a post-it note on their PC with all their user accounts and passwords).
