What is an App Password?
An App Password is a special password that is generated for you within your Microsoft 365 account. It’s meant to be used as a one-off method of authenticating a specific application.
IMPORTANT! You should never write down or store the App Password anywhere! This password will give access to your account without the need to use 2 Factor Authentication, and as such it is insecure. You should only use an App Password if there is no alternative, and generate it only when you need to use it. It will be displayed on the screen once only. You should periodically review you App Passwords and delete any that are no longer required.
