iCloud keeps prompting for Sign-In after Multi-Factor Enabled

Issue:

Ever since we started multi-factor authentication, iCloud asks me to sign in on my desktop using a verification code from my iPhone every 15 minutes.

 

Environment:

macbook

iCloud

 

Cause:

App passwords may be required for some applications to work after multi-factor is enabled.

 

Resolution:

Use an app password to sign in. See this article for how to create an app password.
