How to set up a google workspace account in CardClan
2-step authentication adds an extra security layer to your email account and prevents unauthorized access to it.
Setting 1: Allow less secure apps at the admin level
Head over to https://admin.google.com/ac/security/lsa and click on "Allow users to manage their access to less secure apps".
Setting 2: Allows Less Secure Apps (mailbox level)
Go to https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps and toggle as in the picture below.
Now try connecting your account to CardClan again.
If this doesn't work please follow the instructions below:
Setting 1: In your Google Account, navigate to the Security section. Under Signing in to Google, select 2-Step Verification and click Get started.
Setting 2: Set up your phone number and choose the way you want to receive your security codes. Confirm that it works and turn the 2-step verification On.
Setting 3: Add an App password
An App password is a 16-digit passkey that gives an app permission to access your Google Account. If you use 2-Step Verification and see a “password incorrect” error while trying to access your Google Account, an App password may solve the issue.
- In your Google Account, select Signing into Google.
- Click on the App password.
- Choose Other (Custom name), insert cardclan.io and generate the app password.
- Save the generated app password and use it when setting up your SMTP sender account instead of the password to your account for SMTP credentials.
