If you have previously activated Yahoo’s 2-Step verification service, you need to use an app password when connecting your Yahoo account to CopyTrans Contacts, instead of the password you’d normally use.

To get the app password follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to your Yahoo account from a web browser on your PC.

  2. Right-click on your name at the top right and tap on “Account Info”: Set up your Yahoo! in CopyTrans Contacts

  5. Type in “CopyTrans Contacts” and click “Generate”: Connect your Yahoo! account with 2-step verification

  6. Copy the unique one-time password which appeared in the dialogue box. Follow the instructions below the password (if any). Click “Done”: Connect your Yahoo! account with 2-step verification

    Note: the “Generate Passwords” page saves a complete list of your authorized apps. As another layer of security, under the App Passwords section you’ll also see a timestamp of the last time you used an app password with that app: Connect your Yahoo! account with 2-step verification

  7. Now open CopyTrans Contacts and tap on “More” at the top right. From the drop-down menu select “Cloud setup” and click on it: Set up your Yahoo! account to manage all your contacts, calendars and notes in CopyTrans Contacts
