Previously a user had to retrieve AuthToken using Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime assembly:
Uri siteUrl = new Uri("");
var username = "";
SecureString password = new SecureString();
var password = "MyPassword";
foreach (char c in password)
var onlineCredentials = new SharePointOnlineCredentials(username, password);
var fedAuthTicket = onlineCredentials.GetAuthenticationCookie(siteUrl, true);
var projectOnlineCredentials = new ProjectServerCredentials(siteUrl.ToString(), fedAuthTicket);
ProjectOnlineReader reader = new ProjectOnlineReader(projectOnlineCredentials);

Now a user has an option to specify SiteUrl, username, and password in order to create a connection to Project Online:

string sharePointDomainAddress = "";
string userName = "";
string password = "MyPassword";
var credentials = new ProjectServerCredentials(sharePointDomainAddress, userName, password);
ProjectOnlineReader reader = new ProjectOnlineReader(credentials);
var list = reader.GetProjectList();
foreach (var p in list)
    Console.WriteLine("{0} - {1} - {2}", p.Name, p.CreatedDate, p.LastSavedDate);
foreach (var p in list)
    var project = reader.GetProject(p.Id);
    Console.WriteLine("Project '{0}' loaded. Resources count: {1}", p.Name, project.Resources.Count);
