FastMail provides a great way to stay secure when using third party applications for sending email, managing your calendar and more.

Why app passwords?

FastMail requires all third party apps to use app passwords rather than your normal password to login. This is great because it provides additional security for you as a FastMail user.

How does it work?

Instead of using your normal password to login to a third party app you can create an app password in FastMail. This is done under Password & Security > App Passwords.

You can have multiple app passwords and choose what services they should have access to, like sending and receiving email with IMAP/POP/SMTP, contact management with CardDAV/LDAP and calendars with CalDAV.

When you've chosen what access you want your new password to have, click "Generate Password" and you're good to go!
