Gmail/Google Apps "modern security standards" email error

Authors list

Question:

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?

 

Answer:

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".

 

2. You can enable 2-Step Verification for the affected Google account, and create an App Password for Deskpro.
