What is an App-Specific Password?
App-specific password allows you to sign in to iCloud with third party apps. Once you enable two-step verification for your iCloud account, you have to generate an app-specific password to add your account to Newton. Here is how it’s done:
- Sign in to your Apple ID account page.
- In the Security section, click Generate Password below App-Specific Passwords.
- Follow the steps on your screen.
- After you generate your app-specific password, enter or paste it into the password field of Newton as you would normally.
PS: To generate and use app-specific passwords, your Apple ID must be protected with two-factor authentication.
