How to Create App Password for Office 365?

An app password allows a device or app to access your Office 365 account securely. In case, the multi-factor authentication is enabled for your user account, and then you can use an app password to login to any external application like the Kernel tool. The app password is a unique code that works for the application. Here is the procedure which you need to follow in order to create the App Password in the Office 365 Admin Center.

  1. Sign-in into your user account and go to Admin Center by clicking the Admin icon in the Apps launcher.
  2. Go to your account and select ‘My Account.’
  3. Select ‘Security & privacy.’
  4. Click ‘Additional security verification.’ NOTE: You’ll see this option only when your admin has set up multi-factor authentication for your account.
  5. Click Create and manage app password.
  6. Click Create.
  7. Enter any name and click on the next button. Now, an app password is created successfully. You can choose to ‘copy password to clipboard.’
  8. Now go to the Kernel application and use the app password to login to your Office account.
