Google Gmail "Less Secure Apps" is Going Away!

Google is wanting to cut down on the amount of Spam going through their SMTP Server so "Less Secure Apps" is going away. To continue using the Gmail server you must use 2-Step-Verification and a Google App Password. When 2-Step-Verification is selected the "Less Secure Apps" option will no longer appear and the "Create App Password" option will appear. The App Password you create will only be used in the SMS Setup in the ET Predictor screen not for logging in to your Gmail account, that password stays the same. You only have to create the App Password once unless you change your Gmail login password.

Here is a link to a YouTube video showing how to create a Google App Password step by step.

If you want a better SMS texting solution you can use a private server that has none of the problems with using a free server. For $5.00 a month you can use a private server with no limitations on usage. Check out the company "FastMail" and their "Standard" plan.
