I've been using FB's App Passwords feature for years now to use Pidgin while I have 2-fac enabled. However, about a week ago my password broke, so I went to FB to enable a new one. And it looks like the feature has been completely removed. None of the guides I can find online are helpful (all of them tell me to go to a link that doesn't exist) and the FB official help page no longer exists either.

Is there an alternate way to use 2-fac and app passwords? Or is Facebook that insistent that you never go outside its ecosystem that it prefers that people get hacked without 2-fac?
