I am constantly getting "web login required" when accessing Gmail using POP from the email application. I know what should be causing it but I am unable to figure out why it won't go away. Here is what I tried:
enabled "Less secure apps" to ensure it can use the regular username/password (https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps)
checked if "2-step verification" is disabled and it is disabled so this should not cause issues (https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/1064203?hl=en)
went to "Sign in & security" and clicked on every item displayed about suspicious activity and clicked "yes, it was me" button
checked if POP support is enabled in Gmail webmail interface and it is
did a "display unlock captcha" to supposedly unlock (https://accounts.google.com/DisplayUnlockCaptcha)
But it still persistently shows "web login required". Did I miss anything else? Is there a way to "reset" the account so the web login required goes away?
