quick way to email with gmail?

Post by fbungarz » 31 Aug 20 19:36

Hi Hert,
I always loved the idea of being able to quickly email photos from PSu, but never got "double authentication" in Gmail to work.
I thought with all the new additions to PSu, I'd give this a try again, but still get this:

Is there no way to get this to work without disabling Gmail double authentication???

Thanks,
Frank

BTW - there is an old post from a while ago. Even when I turned two-way authentication off, I never managed to get things to work:

I wonder if any solution to this has been found by now...
I really do not like the idea to turn two-factor authentication off as the only option.

I figured it out myself. You have to create an app password in Gmail:

Works now. Great!
Thanks!
