I tried to connect Deskpro to a Gmail account, and I got a "Sign-in attempt prevented" email saying someone tried to sign in to my Google Account "from an app that doesn't meet modern security standards".
What is causing this and what can I do?
Google is trying to move their email authentication system to use OAuth, a less common protocol that has not yet been widely adopted by other providers. We are working to add support for this to Deskpro.
There are currently two possible solutions:
1. You can enable access using the standard protocols by going to https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps (while logged into the affected Gmail/Google Apps account) and selecting "Less Secure Apps".
