iCloud password error

I have a problem after updating my icloud password.

My new password contains a few special characters (!@#$% …) and after restarting home assistant I get the following error:

  2018-08-16 08:30:52 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.bootstrap] Error loading /home/homeassistant/.homeassistant/configuration.yaml$
  in "/home/homeassistant/.homeassistant/secrets.yaml", line 25, column 17
expected alphabetic or numeric character, but found '>'
  in "/home/homeassistant/.homeassistant/secrets.yaml", line 25, column 21

Anyone know how to deal with this?


Wrap the string with the > in quotes in your secrets.yaml.
