Using Apple ID/iCloud 2-Step Verification/2-Factor Authentication


Apple iCloud Users have the option of using two-step verification or two-factor authentication.

Existing Match My Email Users that choose to use the 2-factor authentication offered for their iCloud email accounts, may get an alert that their IMAP credential should be updated.  Users actually need to create a specific app password as recommended by Apple.  New Match My Email Users should also do this and then use that password when setting up Match My Email import.

1. Create app specific password

2. Login to MatchMyEmail

3. Go to Import and click the correct email account listing (do not check the box, click on the line)

4. In password field, enter the specific app password.  Click Save at bottom and click Start Import Manually to be sure import runs without issue.
