Solved : Error Login Gmail on Android After Enable 2 Factor Authentication

| Comments

Gmail improve security awareness for user by adding new feature : 2 factor authentication. This is abosultely not a new feature. Google has implemented this feature since a year ago. But there is a problem for some android user (like me), that related with this featyre. After activated 2 factor authentication in Gmail, i fail to login to the gmail account in my android handset. The error message say that i have entered wrong username or password. To solve this problem, you have to go to your account setting : https://www.google.com/settings/

  1. In the Security Field, there is a 2-step Verification column, and then click edit.

  2. Google will lead you to this page –> https://accounts.google.com/b/0/SmsAuthConfig

  3. Scroll, and you can see the Option : Application-spesific Password

  4. Click Option Manage Application-spesific password

  5. Scroll and you can find a column named : Generate new application-specific password

    You can see the bos for example Android, and then click Generate Password

    Google will provide 16 digit random letter. That random letter is your password for your Google Accont in your Android Handset.

  6. Finish. Now you can use your Google account in your android handset

Good Luck. :D
