NEWS: Some Gmail Users Affected by New Google Policies

Talkler remains one of the most secure mobile apps for speech technology and email.

Google recently changed its security policy for Gmail, by disabling Basic Authentication for some of its users. Instead, Google has started requiring some Gmail users to use a security protocol called OAuth 2.0 (what's OAuth 2.0?).

As a result, some Talkler/Gmail users* may receive a message from Google that a sign-in attempt was blocked. Or they may see an error message from Talkler when trying to connect to a Gmail account.

If you have problems connecting to Gmail, you may need to re-enable Basic Authentication for your Gmail account. Here's how to re-enable Basic Authentication » (full article)

Good news: For the convenience of our Talkler users with Gmail, we'll release a new version of Talkler in the next few weeks, with support for Google's new policy and OAuth 2.0. In the meanwhile, simply re-enable Basic Authentication.

*This change ONLY affects some users of free Gmail services. It does NOT affect users of Google Apps, Google Apps for Business or Google Apps for Work.
