Just got a Google update on my Google FI android phone and next popped up in M Gmail:  Update your Exchange account   O***********k@msn.com.
Open it and it starts Reviewing security policy.  Next screen up: Can't add account  gmail's security settings are more secure than those set by your IT admin.   contact your IT admin for help. Only options it gives are Remove account or close.
O***********K@msn.com has been my email address since 2002 and used in Project FI / Google FI phone since April 2016 so is there a fix?  what do we need to fix it?

Same here. Started 1 hour ago. Nothing's been changed (by me) and now Gmail will not work with my @live.co.uk account.  Won't sync and comes up with this message "Can't add account" - "Gmail's security settings are more secure than those set by your IT admin."  "Contact your IT admin for help."

I don't have any ******* IT admin!  It's my personal phone and personal email account.

Why do we have to put up with crap like this!!!???

I do not think this is Fi related. I suggest posting in the GMail forum

Same here with my email account. After GMAIL app upgrade I get the same error text (in german) with my Huawei Android 9.1.

German error text:
Konto kann nicht hinzugefügt werden
Die Sicherheitseinstellungen von Gmail sind momentan strenger als die von Ihrem IT-Administrator festgelegten Einstellungen.
Bitte wenden Sie sich an Ihren IT-Administrator.

Any solution yet?

Folks- this is not a generic help forum for all things Google-related, it's a specific help forum for users of Google Fi, the mobile phone operator.

if your question  has nothing to do with the mobile network or with using Fi, you're in the wrong spot.   If you want help with your Gmail account, you need to go to the Gmail help forum.

One more comment:
My/our problem is not related to a Gmail account! I'm NOT using the gmail app to get Gmail mails, I'm using the "exchange" feature to get my SOGo mails (my personal server) synched to my phone.
I found this thread only because of the error message by google search. If anyone finds a solution (e.g. settings on the phone) it can help for all phone models.

This has started to happen to me in the last 24-48 hours on my nexus 4 with my outlook.com exchange active sync account.

I suspect this is an issue with an update to gmail, I have 2FA enabled on both my google and outlook account, I'm using an application password for my outlook account.

Can this be sorted ASAP.
