    Not sure what is app is not syncing, I see you mention mail and calendar.

    A lot of apps are considered insecure and as such you require an "app" password.

    So rather than using your standard password you use this alternate "app" password.

    Depending on your account domain, yahoo, gmail, outlook.com, you have to go to security options. You should see the option to generate an App password. Each domain is a little different to fin "App" password.

    Use this in the app that you are using for mail and calendar.


    While 2FA MFA is a positive layer of security please consider some of the use cases when your authentication method is not available. Say you lost your phone or your phone crashes and your authenticator app is not working. Make sure you have alternate way to authenticate, alternate phone, emergency codes, etc. There are different authentication apps, one that allows you to make backups and run on multiple devices is Authy. I'm just starting to experiment with it.
