It will give you a password to sign in with instead of the one you had been trying and should work as expected from there.

This info should be included on the OP, so that new people to this (like me) know how to resolve the issue quickly.

Curious if this a problem/solution only for those using two factor authentication or have enabled enhanced security in their Google account settings. I do both which can be a minor PiTA at times but necessary imo. Please, no debates on security here...start another thread or contribute to one of the 8 billion already out there

I used 2-factor, which is what I believe caused the issue. What is the "enhanced security" that you enabled? I don't see it in my Google Account settings? Anytime I search for "Enhanced Security" all I get are links to the 2-factor setup...

If you do NOT have multi factor enabled there is an option titled 'Access for less secure apps' with a simple on/off toggle. On the settings panel it occupies the spot just below '2-step verification' when this option is disabled. Changes to 'App passwords' when 2-step is enabled.
