Use or fix App password

If you turn on 2-Step Verification and want to sign in to your Google Account through a device, mobile app, or desktop app, you need to enter an App Password.

You need to create a different App Password for each device or app you use with your Google Account.

If you have trouble with an App Password on your device:

  1. On the browser, allow access to your Google account.
  2. Enter your username and password, then enter the letters on the screen.
  3. Go back to the app you want to access and enter your App Password.
