Microsoft 365 from GoDaddy Help

Create app passwords

After setting up multi-factor authentication (MFA), you can use app passwords to sign in to older apps and devices that don't support security codes. You'll only need to sign in once with your randomly generated app password instead of your regular email password. You can use the same app password with multiple devices or create a new app password for each device.

  1. Sign in to the Additional security verification page. Use your Microsoft 365 email address and password (your GoDaddy username and password won't work here).
  2. Enter the verification code sent to your phone or use the Microsoft Authenticator app to prove you're authorized to access your email account.
  3. At the top of the page, select App Passwords. You must have MFA enabled to see this option.

  4. Select create.
  5. Enter a Name to help you remember when to use the password, such as the name of your device. Then select next.

  6. Your Password is displayed. Select copy password to clipboard and save your password in a secure location. The password can't be displayed again.

  7. Select close to see a list of your app passwords. From here, you can create or delete passwords as needed.

The next time you sign in to your email account, you'll be asked to enter your app password. You should only need to do this once per app.
