Create Your Adalo ‘App-Specific Password’
How to setup and use your Apple App-Specific Password
Skill Level: Intermediate
- You will need a paid Adalo plan to use this feature.
- Ensure you have created your Apple Developer account and app Bundle ID.
- App Specific Password must be created using the Email Address on the Apple Developer account.
If you reset your iCloud password, you will need to create a new App Specific Password.
Apple’s ‘App-Specific Passwords’ are used so that third-party companies like Adalo can securely sign into Apple accounts. For example, you might have created one if you needed to sign into iCloud on a Windows device.
Creating an ‘App-Specific Password’ for Adalo allows us to securely upload your app to TestFlight. To create one:
1.) Copy and paste this web address into your browser: https://appleid.apple.com and click the blue Sign In button to sign into your Apple Developer account if you have not already done so.
2.) In the section labeled Sign-In and Security click on the App-Specific Passwords tile.
3.) Click the blue plus sign in the popup.
4.) Give your new app-specific password a name such as "Adalo - Your App Name", then click Create
5.) Apple may ask you to confirm your Apple ID password again. After you have confirmed your password, you will be able to see your new App-Specific Password. Be sure to copy this password and save it somewhere safe - you will not be able to see it again!
6.) Click Done once you have copied your app-specific password and saved it. You can also revoke these app-specific passwords at any time by clicking the gray minus sign in the passwords list.
