    Hi @Anonymous

    You will want to change to modern authentication as per the similar topic at https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/810878/csom-backend-with-modern-authentication.html

    There is an example in that question which you can use to authenticate.

    The deadline is only for Exchange Online, it does not directly affect SPO. However, you can expect basic auth to be deprecated in SPO too, eventually. So best start updating your solutions to use more modern methods.
    That said, no deadline has been communicated yet, afaik.
