App password and two-step verification
After you turn on 2-Step Verification, some apps (like email programs on some phones) or devices (like an Xbox 360 or Windows Phone 8) will display an incorrect password error because they cannot prompt you to enter a security code when you try to log in. The solution to this issue is to create app words that will be used instead of your regular password, but only for those apps that do not support two-step verification. App password is long, randomly generated password that you only have to give once.
If you do not use two-step verification, you will not be able to create app password. For help with your Hotmail account password, see when you cannot log in to your Hotmail account.
