Office 365 preventing users from changing their password

In Office365, how can users be prevented from changing their password?
How can the administrator be notified when a user changes a password?

You don't want to prevent users from changing their password and i dont think there is a way to achieve that in O365, and you will need to look at the auditing logs to see when a password was changed. See below link:

Agreed with Tim, no way to prevent users from changing passwords. If you do have such requirements, you need to change the auth method to AD FS/PTA, as in redirect the authentication process to on-premises, so that you can enforce any restrictions you like.
You can create alerts for that kind of events from https://protection.office.com/#/managealerts

Thanks Eric, however I tried looking in this area, and I could not find any alerts for password changes.
If you have any suggestions as to where I would find this I would appreciate it.
Thanks very much.

Thanks Eric.  I imagine this is the solution, however since I don't have the appropriate permissions, I can't try it.  Many thanks,
