When trying to sign in with my personal Google account on desktop apps made with the Electron framework (native wrapper around a web app), I get the following error and can't sign in:
This browser or app may not be secure. Learn more
Try using a different browser. If you’re already using a supported browser, you can refresh your screen and try again to sign in.
The problem must lie with the particular account because I can log into the same app just fine with other Google accounts. The problematic account otherwise works well (e.g. logging in on the web, using it for Chrome Sync, accessing Gmail). In case this matters: it is the only account where I use Two Factor Authentification.
