I'm trying to learn more about sending/receiving email and experimenting with building an app. I noticed that if I use the example file for Pop3, Gmail blocks the attempt saying:
Google will continue to block sign-in attempts from the app you're using because it has known security problems or is out of date. You can continue to use this app by allowing access to less secure apps, but this may leave your account vulnerable.
Is there a way to get around that without having them have to switch that on?
I did some research and google uses something called oAuth2.0, is that something I need to implement somehow?
Thanks for any advice!
