MacOS: Remove password requirement policies originally applied by MDM's

Summary:

Occasionally, a system no longer managed by an MDM will leave garbage behind.  One of those 'things' is password policies.  You can use a tool in terminal to get rid of the password policy.  

Solution:

sudo pwpolicy -clearaccountpolicies

Note:

* If you use above on a still managed system, the above solution will only be temporary.  I recommend following your MDM providers policies as they are in place to protect you and your company.  Regardless of how annoying they might be be.

Reference:

If you want to keep just some things related to the policy, you create your own using the referenced script below:
