Totally agree! I followed the instructions under "How to generate an app-specific password," but after I logged onto my account, I found there is no place to click "Generate New Password" or "App Specific Passwords" in the security section. Should have read above the instructions as it clearly states you need 2FA. I just want to get my freakin' icloud account in my Microsoft Outlook. Why do I need to add more hoops to jump through for authentication!
