By default, Laravel Passport provides access tokens that expire after one year. If we want to configure a custom lifetime, we may use the tokensExpireInrefreshTokensExpireIn, and personalAccessTokensExpireIn methods.

Just we need to update our AuthServiceProvider like that:



namespace App\Providers;

use Laravel\Passport\Passport;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Gate;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Support\Providers\AuthServiceProvider as ServiceProvider;

class AuthServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
     * The model to policy mappings for the application.
     * @var array<class-string, class-string>
    protected $policies = [
        // 'App\Models\Model' => 'App\Policies\ModelPolicy',

     * Register any authentication / authorization services.
    public function boot(): void
