How to use 2-step authentication
Can you please say a bit more about how a third party app is expected to play with your 2-step authentication feature? Is there an API we should be adopting to use it?
In your help page its says the following:
"Some external apps (including Toodledo's official iOS app) do not yet have the capability to do 2-Step Authentication. In these cases you will need to create and use an app-specific password. This is a unique password for your account that will only work inside this specific app. To create one, go to the 2-Step Authentication setup page and click the "Generate App Passwords" link and then follow the instructions."
However I don't see a "Generate App Passwords" link there.
If you are using our newest API (version 3), you dont have to worry about 2-step authentication at all. It is part of the oauth flow that takes place on our site, so we handle it and just pass you the oauth token as usual.
If you are using our older API, then you should upgrade, but if you cannot, you will need to instruct your users to make an App Password and use that instead of their normal password in your app. Here is where they can do that: https://www.toodledo.com/otp.php
Thanks Jake, that's clear.
