In the last article I showed you how to activate Two-Step verification for your Google account. Now I'm going to show you how to create and use an application-specific password for Gmail.
- Log into your Google account at myaccount.google.com. Go to Security in the left sidebar. 2-Step Verification must be on. Now click on App passwords.
- Enter the name of the application. Click on Generate.
- Google will now show you the automatically generated app password.
- Now you can use the app password in the application.
The application specific password even works for GSuite accounts!
