Roger - I'm not seeing any "View History" option in the Apple Account page. It has always been my experience that you simply need to re-generate a new password if you haven't got the initial one written down somewhere. Since they really are "temporary" passwords, I don't think it matters much if one needs to generate new ones whenever they have to sign in again.


Am I missing something? 🙂

This isn't something I could check as I don't have two-factor authentication in place. I simply copied the instructions from the page I also linked to in my post. Possiblly Apple's instructions are out-of-date.

Thanks Roger,


I apparently didn't have any set up currently, ergo, no History.


I added a couple, and although there is a View History all it does is list the App-Specific password by the name you provided when you set it up, the date it was set up, and the option to delete it (or to revoke all of them). So, it is more of a management tool rather than a way to find out what those app-specific passwords actually are.


Thanks! 🙂
