Setting Up an App Password

Why an App Password?

An app password might be needed for applications that are old versions or do not support Multi-Factor Authentication. These passwords are a one-time setup password per app and should not need to be remembered by you. These passwords are not as secure as using an MFA prompt and they should never be shared or sent via email. Using App Passwords should be a last resort if there are other available methods to access your account.
