Can I use a different password while signing in to my Zoho account from a third-party application?

Yes, you can. Application-specific passwords are passcodes that give applications like email clients permission to access your Zoho Mail. Visit our help guide to learn more about application specific passwords.
Follow these steps to enable application-specific passwords for your account:
  1. Go to accounts.zoho.com (or) open the profile panel in your app, then click My Account.
  2. Go to Security, then click App Passwords.
  3. Click Generate New Password.

  4. Enter the app name, then click Generate.
