We strongly recommend that you use a secure app, like Gmail, to access your account. All apps made by Google meet these security standards. Using a less secure app, on the other hand, could leave your account vulnerable.

Some users that user Gmail to fetch or backup another Gmail account experienced Gmail blocking Gmail with error in POP3 server. I also tried and get the error:

[AUTH] Web login required:

The solution is just simple, that is by "Allow less secure apps: ON".

They said that some non-Google apps and devices use less secure sign-in technology, which could leave your account vulnerable. You can turn off access for these apps (which we recommend) or choose to use them despite the risks.
