Yahoo App Password Setup

(for sending alert emails from
your camera to AwareNet)

By default, Yahoo (and most email services) now requires use of "OAuth 2.0" to access the email account from a third-party application (e.g. the email app on your smartphone).

However, apps that don't support OAuth can use an alternative called "application password", which means you are creating a special password for just one specific app (e.g. a security camera app).

For example, the Reolink smartphone app does not support Oauth so you need to create an app password in your Yahoo account to use with the Reolink app instead of your regular Yahoo password. Yahoo provides step-by-step instructions to do this.
