Google Ends Support for Less Secure Apps

Google Ends Support for Less Secure Apps

Why are they making this change?

On May 30, 2022, Google will no longer support using apps or devices that ask you to sign in with your Google Account using only your username and password. Google views this method of login as not meeting their security standards.
