Options in the Security tab keep your account safe

Enabling two-step verification will keep your Gmail account safe. However, the verification codes generated by the two-step verification process will not work with some apps and devices. When this happens, you generate a special password for the app or device to allow it to access email and folders over IMAP (or email over POP). If you no longer use or trust the app or device, delete your password to keep your password safe. Revoking one app-specific password won’t affect other passwords you create for other apps or devices.
