Apple requires iCloud Users to use app-specific passwords for all third-party applications such as OnceHub. An app-specific password is a single-use password for your Apple ID that lets OnceHub securely access the information you store in your iCloud Calendar. This access method requires that you turn on Apple two-factor authentication or Apple two-step verification.
In this article, you'll learn how to create an Apple app-specific password.
Creating an app-specific password
- Sign in to your Apple ID account page.
- Click Settings.
- Under Apple ID, click Manage (Figure 1).
- In the Security section, turn on Apple two-factor authentication if it is not on already. On older devices, use Apple two-step verification instead.
- Under App-Specific Passwords, click Generate Password (Figure 2).
- Enter a password label (for example, "OnceHub").
- Click Create.
- Once the app-specific password is generated, copy it.
You can now use your new app-specific password to connect OnceHub to your iCloud Calendar.
NoteApp-specific passwords are valid until you change your primary Apple ID password. Once you do, all your existing app-specific passwords are automatically revoked and must be generated again. Your OnceHub Account must be reconnected with a new app-specific password.
