To add app passwords in the sign-in wizard

When using app passwords, it's important to remember:

  • App passwords are autogenerated and only entered once per app.

  • There's a limit of 40 passwords per user. If you try to create one after that limit, you'll be prompted to delete an existing password before being allowed to create the new one.

  • Use one app password per device, not per app. For example, create a single password for all the apps on your laptop, and then another single password for all the apps on your desktop.

To add app passwords in the sign-in wizard

  1. After finishing the previous sections of the wizard, select Next and complete the App password section.

  2. Type the name of the app that needs the password, for example Outlook 2010, and then select Next.

  3. Copy the password code from the App password screen and paste it into the Password area of the app (in this example, Outlook 2010).

  4. After you copy the password and paste it in the app, return to this wizard to make sure all of your sign-in method information is accurate, and then select Done.
