I hope someone can help me. I recently set up my email forwarding so I can send and receive my domain email through my Gmail account. I tested it when I set it up and everything worked perfectly, then when I tried to send an email it got these two messages:
You’re sending this from another Google account using the ‘Send mail as’ feature. To send this message, please log in…
Google just blocked someone from signing into your Google Account ***@gmail.com from an app that may put your account at risk.
Less secure app

Don’t recognize this activity?
If you didn’t recently receive an error while trying to access a Google service, like Gmail, from a non-Google application, someone may have your password.
I couldn’t log in to the site so assumed there was a problem on 000webhost’s end, later I heard about the DDoS attack and thought that that might be why. Since the attack was declared over I thought I’d try again but still no luck! I tried deleting the accounts and setting it up again but now it won’t let me set it up on Gmail!
I keep getting this message: Authentication failed. Please check your username/password and Less Secure Apps access for ****@gmail.com.
My passwords and details were definitely correct. I’ve read about changing settings to allow less secure apps but don’t want to do it unless I absolutely must since it worked the first time I set it up without having to change anything…
Does anyone have any suggestions of anything I could try or is it just a case of waiting for everything to get back to normal?
