generate an app password isn't an option

I'm trying to connect an app to my yahoo account.  In the instructions it says to go the account security and click generate app password, but the only option I get is change password.  Is this because I have an old att.com account?  Is there anyway to generate app password with this type of email?

Yes, but it's not called an App Password with AT&T Authentication.  There it is called a "Secure Mail Key."  See below for information:
