Go to Sign in - Google Accounts, log into your Gmail account, then click Continue.

If you are using 2-step verification, skip this step and move to Step 3

Step 3: Generate app password if 2-Step verification is enabled

If you are not using 2-step verification, skip this step and move to Step 4 .

Give it a name such as Manager App and then click Generate.

Note down the application password as it will be required in the next step.
