Google blocked a less secure app from accessing your account







Let less secure apps access your account

 

Change account access for less secure apps

To help keep Google Accounts through work, school, or other groups more secure, we block some less secure apps from using them. If you have this kind of account, you’ll see a "Password incorrect" error when trying to sign in. If so, you have two options:
  • Option 1: Install a more secure app that uses stronger security measures. All Google products, like Gmail, use the latest security measures.
  • Option 2: Change your settings to allow less secure apps into your account. We don't recommend this option because it can make it easier for someone to break into your account. If you want to allow access anyway, follow these steps:
    1. Go to your Google Account.
    2. On the left navigation panel, click Security.
    3. On the bottom of the page, in the Less secure app access panel, click Turn on access.
      1.  If you don't see this setting, your administrator might have turned off less secure app account access.
If you still can't sign in to your account, learn more about the "password incorrect" error.
