Office 365 email Integration – Create an App Password

< All Topics

An app password allows aNinja to access your Office 365 account securely. App passwords are created for each MFA-enabled account to allow signing in to non-browser applications (in which case you are unable to use additional security verification methods, such as providing a code sent via a text message or approving a notification through the Microsoft Authenticator app). Those passwords don’t expire, and you can use them in different programs at the same time.

Creating the App Password in the Office 365 Admin Center.

  • Sign-in into your user account
  • Go to Admin Center by clicking the Admin icon in the Apps launcher.

  • Go to your account and select ‘My Account.

  • Select ‘Security & privacy.’

  • Click ‘Additional security verification.’
    • Note: You’ll see this option only when your admin has set up multi-factor authentication for your account.

  • Click Create and manage app password.

  • Click Create.

  • Enter aNinja and click on the next button.
  • Now, an app password is created successfully. You can choose to ‘copy password to clipboard.’

  • Now go to the aNinja application and use the app password to login to your Office account.
