This walk-thru contains two different processes - setting up an app-specific password on a Google account with 2FA activated and configuring iPad mail to use that password. You'll want to have access to both a computer and your iDevice in order to complete the steps.
The E-mail addresses will vary depending on your group...
- Faculty and Staff = @lfanet.org
- Students = @students.lfanet.org
- Alumni = @alumni.lfanet.org

|1) - Goto / login to https://myaccount.google.com/security. Scroll down until you see the App Passwords option. Select it to get to the main setup screen.|
|2) - Select the app and device you want to create a password for. In this case, its Mail on an iPad.|
|3) - Once complete, click Generate.|
|4) - You should now see your one-time password that was assigned. Keep this screen open - as you'll need it for the steps to be performed on your iPad. That and you can't get it back once closed and will have to repeat the steps.|
On your iPad
If all has been entered correctly, LFA email should begin to sync on your iPad email. Do not close out of the one-time password until you've verified it's working correctly.
