When Outlook Doesn’t Accept Your Password

In case you find that your Outlook email program is not accepting your password and you know you are using the password for your email account, you might be using your hover email account with an additional security feature. For example, email services like Yahoo Mail, Gmail, Outlook.com, and AOL accounts are known for using two-factor authentication to verify that an authorized person is trying to access your email account.

In order to add your email account to Outlook, you would want to have an app password, which is also referred to as an application password. This app password is different than the regular email account password you use. To know whether you need an app password, you should see the following message (or similar message) on your screen: “Two-factor authentication is set up for your account. Please sign in using your application password.”

In certain cases, you might have to set up your Hover email account in the Outlook email program by manual process.
