2 Factor Authentication in iCloud Mail:

Two factor authentication uses an extra device, like a mobile phone to provide an additional layer of security when you access your account. Two factor / Multi factor Authentication should be disabled in your iCloud account. If it is enabled so, you can create an one time app password and use the password to login to the software.

To generate and use app-specific passwords, your Apple ID must be protected with Two Factor Authentication.

  • Choose Apple menu  > System Preferences, then click Apple ID/ iCloud.
  • Click Password & Security under your name. 
  • Click Turn On Two-Factor Authentication.
