Apple Calendar Cannot Connect to Yahoo Account

I changed a security setting to block apps that may use a less secure sign in method from accessing my Yahoo account when the suggestion popped up from Yahoo. Now my Apple Calendar cannot connect to my Yahoo Calendar. I updated the iO and tried removing and then adding back the Yahoo account to the Apple Calendar but did not help. I get the message "Unable to verify account name or password." I also made sure I am using the correct password.

 

How do I fix this?

I figuired it out. Went to Account Info, then to Account security and then turned on Allow apps that use less secure sign in. This also prevented Mac Contacts from connecting to Yahoo account.
