Hello,

 

where can I enable App Passwords for my users/mailboxes in admin center?
I can't find it.

This setting is in the old MFA portal: https://account.activedirectory.windowsazure.com/UserManagement/MfaSettings.aspx?BrandContextID=O365

 

And you should avoid it, now that all first-party (and some third-party) apps support Modern auth, there is no need to use this.

Thanks for your answer. I'm aware of the security risk, but the App I want to use doesn't support MFA at the moment and I need it urgently. 

 

I followed your link. MFA with App passwords was already enabled. But how can I use it?

If I try to add another authentication method (in the user settings itself) I can only chose between telephone and authenticator app. App password is missing.

If it's enabled in the MFA portal, you should see it as an option under My Sign-Ins (microsoft.com)

If it's not there, check whether Security defaults are enabled. If that's not it either, open a support case.
