GMail less secure apps email login EOL 202205

Recommended Posts

just got a notice from Google titled "On May 30, you may lose access to apps that are using less secure sign-in technology".  this is the account i use to send me email notifiers from Retrospect.

I don't think the settings in Retrospect allow doing what they ask.  here is there document describing solutions.


how am i supposed to do this?  do you need to change something in Retrospect.

think you generate an App Password as described on that page, then use that instead of your Google account password when setting up mail sending in Retrospect. This page should walk you through the process (assuming that the announced change doesn't break things!).

The good news is that you've plenty of time to try to get it to work!
