In order to use an app password, one must be generated in the Google account. To create this password, follow these steps:
  1. Log in to your Google Account and click on Manage Your Google Account.
  2. Select Security from the Google Account Settings menu.
    Google Security Settings
  3. Select App Passwords under the Signing in to Google section.

  5. Under Select Device, choose Other. Name it something like DEVOS so that you remember what that password is used for.
    Generate App Password
  6. Click Generate. A new window will open with the app password highlighted.
