Can’t Connect to an AOL Account

If you’re experiencing troubles adding an AOL account to Spark, please follow these steps.

1. Generate an app password for Spark on the AOL account’s webpage

  1. Open the AOL account webpage.
  2. Select Account > Account security.
  3. Click Generate an App Password for Spark.

Please check the network connection on your device. If you use a VPN, we can’t guarantee Spark will work properly. The quality of the performance via VPN solely relies on the servers of the VPN network. For this reason, we recommend you turn the VPN off.

Some organizations enable a firewall to prevent access to certain websites from their networks. Ask the administrator if the access to Spark (as the third-party email application) is allowed. Alternatively, you can try to connect to a different network.

  1. Click Spark at the top left of your screen.
  2. Select Add Account > Set up account manually.
  3. Enter your email and password.
  1. In Spark, tap the menu icon  at the top left.
  2. Open Settings > Mail Accounts > Add Account.
  3. Select Set Up Account Manually.
  4. Enter your email address and password.
  1. Tap the menu icon  at the top left.
  2. Open Settings > Mail Accounts > Add Account.
