Recently noticed the App Password section within Office 365 Portal no longer exists, I previously managed to set-up 3 passwords however upon my return to add an additional password I noticed this no longer exists ?

Also cross checked with:

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/user-help/multi-factor-authentication-end-user-app-passwords#:~:text=From%20the%20App%20passwords%20page%2C%20select%20Delete%20next%20to%20the,app%20password%20is%20successfully%20deleted.

This is what I see only

    @Vimal Vala ,

    The options of Security & privacy seems to be modified, please following the prompt to go to new "My Account portal" > Security info to check whether you may find the passwords set previously.

    You may also try to add App password as following.
