Google justified the change by saying that user security should be increased. Specifically, Google’s support site says:
“If an app or website doesn’t meet our security standards, Google blocks all attempts to sign in to your account. Less secure apps make it easier for hackers to access your account. Therefore, blocking these attempts login, we protect your account.”
There is also an important note on the Google page for Apple device users. Google notes:
“Users who recently signed in to their Google Account using something other than their username and password will only be able to make new sign-in attempts using their Google Account type starting February 28, 2022. Existing users will have until May 30 to sign in to their Google account in 2022 with their username and password.”
These users are affected by the change.
Affected by the change, as of May 30, are users who have not yet activated two-factor authentication to sign in to their Google account. If this is on, apps and devices can’t just sign in to a Google account by entering the Google username and password anyway. the corresponding
Setting “Access by less secure applications”
is then disabled by Google by default.
