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:
        Go to the "Less secure apps" section of my Account. https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps
        Turn on Allow less secure apps. (Note: If your administrator has locked less secure app account access, this setting is hidden.)

I'm just reviewing a community that serves and gives problems with the Gmail emails that it has been using for years. That's why it's great for me. I'm going to try it to see how anything you notice!
